Neighbours Week: 3. Glossop


This week we are visiting our five nearest neighbours.

South-East is Glossop and this is Glossop Town Hall viewed from Norfolk Square. Topped by a distinctive clock tower, its arcaded and colonnaded ground floor is now used as a small shopping precinct.

The "Cooltraders" store next door was originally "Woolworths".


Although its major public transport links are towards Manchester, Glossop is part of the High Peak District of Derbyshire.

Now Glossop I do know. From what I cam recall, some marvellous building and used to be very pristine. It's definitely the North meets the Midlands feel to it.
