Historic road revealed during work on Altrincham Market
10:00am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A HISTORIC stone driveway and courtyard has been revealed during the work to create a new public market and event space in the lower market, on Central Way, in Altrincham.
The driveway comes through an alleyway from Greenwood Street, leading to some late 19th century buildings set around a courtyard, which were perhaps used as stables.
Sue Nichols, project coordinator of the Heritage of the Altrincham Area said: “We would very much like to see this newly discovered tangible link with the past, incorporated into the plans for surface of the new public space.
“The sweeping curve of the driveway would make a fascinating feature and help to celebrate our unique heritage.”
