Mary Street in July 2001.

In 1851 George Clarke, the brickmaker, moved to Rishton and lived in Mary Street for his first 10 years in Rishton, before moving to Norden view with his family.

William Coleman, who ran a haulage company and coal yard, was married to Mary. The Coleman's moved to Rishton from Buckinghamshire and it was after his wife that the street was named.

The street runs up to the Albert Mill, cutting across Knowles Street, Haworth Street, and Noble Street in the process.

Mary Street in July 1997.

There was previously a coal yard on Mary Street that belonged to William Coleman, and also a Methodist Church. The church was demolished and new houses now stand on the site. These houses have been named Mary Court.

Previous records show that the shop on the left hand corner of the Mary Street and High Street was previously two separate houses, there was another door just a little up from the one which can be seen, but if this is the case the room must have been very small as downstairs measures no bigger than fourteen feet square.

The Labour Exchange was previously on Mary Street, situated in the former print works on the corner. There is visible here a bricked up doorway.
