Commercial Street seems to have been constructed, with King Street, c. 1815 as part of the turnpike road along the valley from Obelisk (Cooper Bridge) to Elland. It was the first Brighouse bypass, but from the mid-19C it became built up as a shopping street. It later carried westbound main road traffic as part of a one-way system, but this unsatisfactory arrangement ended when the present bypass road was constructed. The George Hotel (No. 2) is on the corner with Bradford Road, on the right. Then there are two shops in one building (Nos. 4 and 6), which was a butchers in 1815. Then the modern bank building (No. 26), which replaced half of a yard that had a block of eight back-to-back houses at the front and four small houses at the rear. These twelve houses were presumably numbered 8 to 30.
