Northampton Street
Northampton Street
A steep street which widens dramatically above the kink a third of the way up. The housing in this street mostly dates from the early 1800s. Much damage was done to the lower end of the street in the Second World War. Some of this was replaced by a council block (Phoenix House - not visible in this photograph); in the 1990s the two houses below the gap on the right of the street were built, more sympathetically matching the others. More recently, the lowest house on the right became a private house; previously it had been a pub, the Dark Horse (formerly the White Horse). Telephone wires fan out across the top end of the street, attaching themselves a storey below the rooflines of the houses.
