Belle Vue


BELLE VUE    Chapel Bank    Wrockwardine Wood.

Understood to have been just North of the inclined plane, site is now under the Wrockwardine Wood Way.

Last licensee moved out 7 March 1982 and the property was 

then demolished to allow construction of the new road.

                             

Note the chapel on the right, still in place alongside the Wrockwardine Wood Way.
