Scenes from Hadfield.

Old Hall, Hadfield
The original centre of Hadfield was around its Cross and extended down what is now Hadfield Road. Hadfield Old Hall was built in 1646 by Thomas Hadfield, who had been Captain in Parliamentarian army in the Civil Wars against King Charles I.

The cottages shown in the photo on the right are further down the modern Hadfield Road, opposite The Spinners Arms public house and date from around the same period as the Old Hall.

Old Cottages, Hadfield

The village centre moved for two reasons - the advent of the cotton industry (which meant that mills were built along the water courses) and the building of the railway in a line to take it to Woodhead on the Derbyshire side of the Etherow.

This photograph of Waterside Mill was taken in the early years of the 20th century.
