Demolition on Walkley Crescent Rd


An historic house on Walkley Crescent Rd will soon be demolished to make way for a set of new homes.

The house, number 40, has all the looks of a Freehold Land Society house. Walkley Crescent Rd was part of the Rivelin View Land Society.  It bears a name plaque which gives the house the name ‘Armthorpe Cottage’ and the date of 1868.
