Railway Terrace, Stanley Hill Top, Crook

  • Description

    "The house at the end of this row was a former pub, called the Forresters. This village was classified as category "D" in the 1960s and damned to have no development. However, this policy was later abandoned. A railway ran up to this high point from Crook, up "the fearsome Stanley incline", no doubt pulled by cable or with special wheels like cogs. It was said that residents could hear the pitmen walking underground as they went to work. A reservoir lies to the rear of these houses." Photo by Tom Jolliffe, 1977.
