Old Photos of Millpond Street
At the corner where Millpond Street meets Station Street, where Morrisons Garage forecourt now stands, stood a row of houses called Wolverhampton Terrace.
Behind this, down Millpond Street, was Kemps of Ross who were taken over by Bradfords and moved to Alton Road. The entrance to Kemps can be seen on the left side of the left-hand photo.
These houses were demolished when the site was redeveloped to build Safeways Supermarket (now Morrisons).
This photo shows the cleared site of Wolverhampton Terrace with Kemps (builders merchants) in the background. To the left can be seen the materials used to build Safeway Supermarket (now Morrisons).
Where Wolverhampton Terrace stood is now Morrisons Filling Station.
