No 1 Pilton Street and No 8 Pilton Quay

No 1 Pilton Street and No 8 Pilton Quay /media/flashcomm?action=mediaview&context=normal&id=81
Description:

These cottages were at the bottom of Pilton Street at the junction with Pilton Quay.
No 1 Pilton Street was lived in by Sarah Gribble and her daughter Nellie Georgina Gribble (age 4) as recorded in the 1881 census. Later, No 1 Pilton Street was lived in by Mrs Cowler and her son Richard. No 8 Pilton Quay was lived in by Ethel Morgan and her mother. At one point, No 8 Pilton Quay was also lived by William and Jane Bartlett and then by their grandson Harold and his wife Doris Bartlett (whose wedding reception was held in the Church Hall in 1936).

The cottages were demolished in the 1960s for road widening for the new layout on Pilton Bridge which changed Pilton Quay into the main road instead of Pilton Street. The mosaic made in 1987 by the Horse and Bamboo Theatre Company was fixed to the end wall of No 2 Pilton Street.

The photograph was provided by John Norman.
