ABC Wednesday:N is for Newtonhurst

Off Victoria Street, Newton are five rows of terraced houses known as Newton Hurst dated 1960.

According to the Hyde Cheshire blog these houses were built by the now defunct Waldorf Stationary Company of Newton Mill, Ashton Road to house its workers. Apparently these houses are back to front. Before Charlton Avenue and the current estate of new houses was built on the former Newton Hurst cricket ground, a small road on the other side of the houses provided the main access, so what are now the front gardens were originally the back.

This is the one on the right hand side facing Victoria Street.

See the one on the left hand side and a close view of the signage on Hyde DP Xtra.

See old aerial views on Old Hyde.

  1. Lovely building and interesting about the gardens.

  2. Makes me wonder what the owners had to adjust. I'm just thinking of our house, and making that change will not be easy.

  3. These terraced houses are all different from each other, and that makes them interesting.
    Have a nice week, Gerald!
