Bingley, Old Main Street
Bingley, Old Main Street
Christopher Saxton's 1592 map shows Bingley as a single street with about 20 houses on each side. The church sits at the west end of the street opposite a single large house, possibly a manor house. Since Bingley was a market town, the market stalls would have been set up on either side of the main street. The Old White Horse Inn, a former coaching house on the left hand side in this photograph, is one of the oldest buildings in Bingley. The only building shown on Saxton's map which now still survives is the parish church of All Saints whose tower can be seen on the right hand side.
