Children's Playground, Waterside, Colne
Children's Playground, Waterside, Colne
The old notorious Waterside area, a maze of small factories and mostly slum dwellings, was razed many years ago - partly before and partly after the Second World War. The outlines of some of the buildings were left and still remain, but most of the area was grassed, and a playground provided, as seen here. The eleven terrace houses whose backs are seen in the distance are in Essex Street. Colne is an ancient town well worth a visit, with much to offer the tourist and the photographer.
