Cow Green

Cow Green is at the top of the town centre ring road which we will view from Bull Green to the bottom of Pellon Lane and back to Bull Green again.

This is a rare view that captures the area between the Crown and Anchor and the view below. Sutcliffe's can be seen on both pictures which helps. The building on the left was once the White Hart Inn and was demolished in 1897. The next building, 23/2 Cow Green (with the large gable end) was once the Golden Plough Inn, which also closed in 1897 to make room for the trams.

Cow Green. This block of buildings eventually gave way to a 3 storey car park until it was also recently demolished.

Mount Street


Back in the 1980's Jack Redfearn did loads of sketches which appeared in the courier. Unfortunately unlike those of Arthur Comfort or John Berbiers they were not, as far as I know, reproduced in book form. This one of Jack's, is of Back Lane which ran parallel to Cow Green linking Lister Lane to Mount Street. You are looking towards Lister Lane, Bull Green in the distance.
