Old Road at Highfield

Old Road by Bickerton Road

Highfield today


The above postcard of Old Road dates from before the First World War. The narrow lane to the east of the house in the foreground is what is now Stapleton Road, and the horse and cart are just about to pass the lane that is now Bickerton Road.

The gates of Highfield Park (now the Park Hospital) can be seen on the opposite side of the road. The gate pillars are still there, and the houses on Old Road have not changed much.
