Pitfield Cottages 1869


Pitfield Cottages lie on Wellington Street off Manchester Road, Kingston, next to an industrial plant.

Behind those trees runs the M67 motorway.

A footpath leads behind what was once the Automasters Factory to the Peak Forest Canal.

In 1869 when they were built, the occupants probably worked at Hyde Colliery.
