Belle Isle Cottages nos. 1, 2 (Belle Isle)
Black & White image8th June 1950 Image shows two brick built cottages with sash windows. This row helped make up the hamlet of Old Belle Isle, a simple row of cottages built by Brandling in 1793-4 as housing for colliery workers. With no gas or electricity the rooms were lit by parafin lamps and hotwater supplied by whatever could be boiled on the fire in kettles and pans. The only entrance to the village is via rough tracks making regular coal deliveries in winter an impossibility. In the image a young man sits in the doorway of the cottage. On the left while outside a bicycle leans against a paving stone.

Old Belle Isle Cottages (Belle Isle) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated, The hamlet of Old Belle Isle was built in the late 1700s by Charles Brandling for workers at the nearby Middleton Colliery. The property in this view made up the bottom row of three sets of houses situated just off Old Run Road. Houses were unnumbered. By 1968, these houses had been demolished and the area filled with waste products from the Broom Pit.
