Chapel Street, Altringham, Manchester was once called the ‘Bravest Little Street in Britain’. This small, ordinary terraced street in Manchester was home to men, women and children who lived and worked in local factories and consisted of 60 homes. Although it was bulldozed in the 196’s you can still find a small blue plaque that commemorates the people that lived there and fought in WW1.
