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.

This row, along with two others made up the hamlet of Old Belle Isle. Until the village became deserted in the 1960s, houses had no electricty, gas or hot water. The village also had no road links and was 15 minutes walk from the nearest tram stop.

Old Belle Isle Cottages (Belle Isle)
Black & White imageUndated, View shows the backs of a row of late 18th century cottages in the hamlet of Old Belle Isle. The gable end of the row, which is supported with two buttresses shows that these properties had two storeys at the front, sloping down to one storey at the back. The Middleton railway line and Old Run Road are just out of view beyond the right edge.
