About this image
This photo is believed to have been taken at a cricket ground off Ashbourne Lane and the lie of the land is certainly suggestive of a location in the fields between Buxton Road and Ashbourne Lane. If so then this view is possibly loking south-west. However, the cricket ground must have been an informal affair as no such feature is marked on large scale Ordnance Survey for 1879, 1898 or 1921.
