A little street full of stone cottages. Those on the right share a common yard accessed through ginnels – a northern word meaning passageway.
Approach off Ingersley Road.
Nearest shops – Palmerston Street.
Council Ward – East.
Why Silver Street? I’m not sure. Chapel Street at the top end was previously called Gold Street so perhaps that is a clue. Doorstep milk deliveries (left) used to be the norm for every household but by the beginning of the 21stC they were becoming a rarity with very few milkmen serving few properties. Most households get their milk with the supermarket shopping, although in the late 20 teens there is reported to be a resurgance of trade for the milkman.
This street is in the Bollington Conservation Area.
