This is the site nearest to Hinksay Road and the main entrance to the Old Park Ironworks. Close by would have been the Moor Farm Pits and Wood Colliery.
In the 1840s in Hinksay, 3 rows of terrace houses known as Double Row, Single Row and New/Ladies Row were built to house the local workforce.
Stone Row would have been built in the late 18th century. All of these houses were demolished in the 1960s.
They were not the only buildings to disappear, as a Church of England Mission Chapel on Hinksay Road dating from the 1800s was also a victim of demolition.
The last major industrial activity to take place in the area was the 'Ever Ready Factory' that opened in 1956 and closed in the 1990s.
