Horses at Nell Lane

Here is another one of those occasional posts looking at how horses pulled the way across the township.

It's a picture I have posted before but I think is well worth looking at again.

It is of the pond by the Brook close to the entrance of Chorlton High School.

Now I can’t be certain but I would think the horses belonged to the farm at Hough End Hall which was just to our left beyond the bridge.

The year must be sometime around 1903 and reminds us that horses were still an integral way of work in the township.
