I had a walk down Sun Street and was very disappointed with myself for not taking this walk ten years ago or possibly even less when the old pottery factory still stood and the chapel would have been in a much better condition that it is now.
The name Stafford Place still survives on a sign on the back wall of the chapel as does ‘Gearboxes’ on the roof which until the new houses went up alongside the pub was easily seen from Thornaby Road. Mention of which I noticed a ‘Stafford Terrace’ nameplate on the last house in Thornaby Road and it would appear that the terrace is now part of Thornaby Road and seems to have disappeared as an address in it’s own right . Without doubt, a sign of the times! Taken Sunday 5 July 2015.

This photograph taken from the High Street shows the Parish Church and War Memorial. The Parish Church was built from 1710-1712 and restored in 1893. The chancel was rebuilt in 1906 and the side chapel added in 1925. The War Memorial was erected in 1923.
Also seen in the photograph is a ‘Keep Left’ traffic bollard and a ‘No Waiting’ sign. The police station situated on Church Road (formerly Church Row) was purchased in 1872 and can just be seen behind the Church. We believe this photograph to be c1955.
