Top of Heap
Cottages on the old road between Heywood and Bury marking the summit of the climb from both towns. Ribbon housing development along the roads in this grid square up to WW2, since when there has been an increase in residential property. The four cottages to right of the picture are believed to have started life as a three storey hospital from the time of the Napoleonic wars. Converted to 8 back to back cottages in the 19th century and finally converted in the 1960s to four modern cottages.
