Demolished cottages at corner of Birstwith Road and Village Green

image

In this plan showing the junction of the Birstwith Road with the village green can be seen the outline of two cottages which stood there before (in the 1930's) they were demolished to enable the widening of the road junction.

It is said that the loss of the cottages came about when a bus service was first introduced from Harrogate to Pateley Bridge. This, no doubt, was at the time when the old Post Office was demolished for similar reasons (see the entry for that property by clicking here).

The cottages must have been of some age for they can be seen on the earliest O.S. map of 1853. We gain some idea of their appearance from this old postcard which gives a view of (on the extreme right edge of the picture) a small portion of the buildings when they formed a continuous terrace with Green View which still stands.

Clearly, Green View was the left hand property in a continuous frontage of cottages. This modern photograph of Green View reveals the reconstruction of the façade and north walls following the road-widening . . .
