These stone cottages have improved over the last few years. They are looking really smart and picturesque.... Nice one!

Are these cottages on the left going up towards the A6? Very picturesque.

Good photo - there's no comparison with how I remember them. Very much an estate agent's dream today.

Six front doors but only five chimneys

They are just before you get to the Colliers pub in New Springs/Aspull.

Even when modernised with all mod-cons, without being allowed to enlarge windows they are terribly dark inside. I have visited a few and in winter lights are on at 2-30 pm. No thank you!

I suppose that is a drawback, dark rooms. Imagine what it was like when they were first built, using candles or oil lamps. I still like stone cottages though. I've had a couple of friends who lived in them, and been told they are cold inside, summer and winter..

Yes, I was right it is Woodfield St. Some of them are very well appointed, nice row.
