Description:Looking east along Brammer Street from the junction with Moorland View. Brammer Street was formerly South Street. In the 1890s Bradeley was a village of just three streets. At the bottom of the street on the right (although not visible) is a Wesleyan Chapel opened in 1884. The terraced houses on both sides of the street date from the mid 19th century, the houses in the foreground are 1930s and later. By this period, an additional street called Cliff or Clive Street ran between the Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels. In the 1880s and 90s most of the people living in Brammer Street worked in the coal mining or iron industries in Norton or Chatterley Whitfield.

The terraced houses have been demolished and replaced by flats and on the left hand side by Bradeley Village, a sheltered housing scheme. Beyond the factory building at the bottom was a brick works.
