    Anyone know what the rails down the middle of Ashfield Cottage tenements are. Can't see it being tram lines or railway lines.

    By the looks of the terrain it looks as though there was other buildings there prior to the ones that are there now?

    Yes, you could well be right. They don't look like new buildings, so the track would have to be very old. Don't seem to figure.

    Look I'll let you into a secret here Pab's

    If yer look closely at the far side its not a steel runner...its the edge of the pavement you can see the paving slabs.

    The other side is the same except the paving has been up and the edging has been left in place.

    Yes, I seen that. But I guess these pictures were taken in the thirties. I also gues they are 100 years old. Maybe, just maybe, 50 years old. Then the building befoer that couldn't have been there long surely. Didn't railways start about 1825. Pretty sure an unforgotten line would have been built a lot later. Dunno, just don't figure.

    They are not rail/tram tracks of any sort. What you can see are two pavement edges with a gulley/gutter running down the middle of the street.
