The picture of Town Street, the road through to Derby was at the cross roads a little way down. Being the main road through Bramcote it had shops, a School and the Inn called the White Lion.
The photograph above shows the Inn and Cottages at the top of the small hill leading from the Derby Road. Buildings were built very is close to the road, which seems to step almost onto the road. Note the group of children who have congregated around for the photograph, perhaps at the invitation of the photographer.
The photograph above shows a view of the White Lion plus the cottages next door with their small front gardens.
Alms houses on the corner of Town Street and Cow Lane, these were erected by Frances Jane Longdon in 1852. Opposite you will find the sunken church and grounds.
The above photograph is took looking back towards the island locally know as Bramcote Island on the A52. Again the White Lion and town street can be seen.
