Heronsgate: St. John's Church
Heronsgate was the first estate developed by the Chartists in 1845 and was initially named O'Connorville after their leader, Feargus O'Connor. 35 cottages and a school were built. Town-dwellers from the north of England were re-settled initially at subsidised rents and the street names, Stockport Road, Nottingham Road, Halifax Road and Bradford Road reflect their origins. The ban on alcohol which was imposed at that time gave rise to the nearby public house being named "The Land of Liberty, Peace and Plenty".
