Gleave Avenue

A ‘T’ shaped street of brick detached houses, semi-detached houses and bungalows built c.1960s, early 70s on what were known as Red Lion Fields. Red Lion refers to the now closed pub that was located at the top of High Street on the corner with Chancery Lane. The street is named after the developers, brothers David and Edgar Gleave, a Bollington building firm, their yard was in Oldham Street. All properties have outstanding views. Many of those on the down hill (north east) side have very steep gardens, are three stories high and have their garages, front entrances and living rooms on the top floor, in fact, from the street they look like bungalows.
