Tidy Street

A brief history

By Maureen Brand, North Laine resident

Tidy Street has terraced housing circa 1840, three storey with a small shop at either end on the eastern side.

An 1868 directory lists the following occupations in Tidy Street: general shop, milliner and dressmaker, bootmaker, carpenter, working jeweller, beer retailers, butcher, tailor, greengrocers, painter and a stay maker.

Today the street has a number of young families and can claim to be the street of babies. In 2007 the street had a very successful street party.
