Stock Hill (1)

Stock Hill and 'The Ivy Cottage'. The main approach road to the Valley has always been Stock Hill on which this photograph was taken about 1907 from a point near the end of what is now Merryhills Close. The three people at the foot of the hill are standing roughly in the middle of the present-day roundabout. 'The Ivy Cottage' and 'Vale Cottages', which can just be seen to the left of the people, feature a lot in the old photographs and are a good reference point for the other photographs on this site.
