Bridgefield Close in July 2001.

Found at the end of Well Street, a small side street off Spring Street, and Built on the site of the former Bridgefield Mill, Bridgefield Close was built at the latter end of the 1990’s when the mill had become derelict and was demolished.

It is named Bridgefield after the mill on which site it stands.

The local press had this to say:

‘NEW HOUSING BROUGHT TO FORMER MILL SITE’

Eaves Brook housing Association recently celebrated the opening of their new housing development at Bridgefield Close, Rishton, where Cllr Peter Britcliffe, Leader of Hyndburn Borough Council officially opened the scheme by handing a Ceremonial Key to new resident, Julie Aspin. The scheme brings new life to the former Bridgefield Mill Site which backs on to the Leeds/Liverpool Canal and consists of mixed housing for families, couples and single people.

Says Councillor Peter Britcliffe:

“Bridgefield Close is a suburb development and a fine example of Eaves Brook and Hyndburn Borough Council working in partnership. The development is a former Brownfield site which has now been transformed into an area that Rishton can be proud of.”

The road into the close is, I think, the first road in Rishton to be paved in red block rather than being tarmaced.
