Cooper Street stood just off Manchester Road. It disappeared around the time that Automasters built their new premises circa 1960's .
Some information we've found states that Auto Masters front entrance was "Hewitt Street" but there's no mention of "Hewitt Street" on the old maps we have. Can anyone shed any light on this mystery for us?
This map shows it's locaction in 1910
This map from 2008 shows it as the entrance to Auto Masters .
Auto Masters has since been demolished to make way for a new Housing estate built by Morris Homes. Maybe we'll see the name Cooper Street make a comback as one of the new streets on here, although I doubt it as it wouldn't really fit in with names like "Moorside Place". Shame !
