East Street

East Street bIt is difficult today to get an impression of what East Street was like before World War 1. In 2015 there are 28 properties on East Street: in 1911, there was more than double that number. In 2015 East Street takes traffic away from the centre and around the town with Stamford School premises on both sides: in 1911 it was a back street full of housing.

The western end of the street was narrow with a mass of properties backing onto each other and Hope Terrace a bit to the north. As the map above shows, there were few spaces between the houses all along the street on both sides.

Only a few older properties and Sunny Bank remain.
