SEDDON'S YARD, PEPPER STREET (1) 1974
Here's a slide from 1974 which shows just how close to the town centre the Pepper Street works of Henry Seddon actually came. The building to the right is part of the loading bays where salt would be put onto a horse and cart and taken to Middlewich Station which was only a matter of half a mile or so away at the top of Kinderton Street. We are, of course, looking out onto Lower Street, which by this time had become part of St Michael's Way..
