Church Street to Moor Head Under Construction
** NOTE** Use the thumbnails below to navigate through the different areas of Gildersome.
Springfield House from the air. A portion of Springfield Mill can be seen on the right edge.
Joshua Greathead's House on Church Street. This photo was taken before 1900. After that, the old house was torn down and replaced by a new house that fronts along Church St. approximately where the constible is standing. Still in existence, the new house was called Church Farm House.
St. Peter's Parish Church. Above was the 2nd Church built on the same spot in 1873 as the original that was built in 1777. It was torn down during the 1980s due to structural damage. The original was destroyed by fire. (The top photo courtesy of Margaret and Alan Kirk)

St Peter's "New" Church School. Demolished in 1984. The first gate on the left leads to Spring View House whose corner is just visible. In the 1800s, the house past the schools on the left of Church St., was the Town Meeting Room and Baptist School. The building at the road's vanishing point is the first house at the intersection of Mt Pleasant and Church St. The man is standing at the boundary of Major Greathead's Farm and the New Inn Property.
Church St Cottages. I'm not certain, but I believe these cottages were located at today's 66 Church St.
The New Inn (before Art Deco)
Gildersome's Baptist Church
