Llanidloes street life 4
Cripplegate, c1906 

  Old street, old town
Another glimpse of everyday life in Llanidloes, probably photographed around 1906. This shows a very old street in the town called Cripplegate which leads to a small gate in the wall around the churchyard.
The name is found in many other old towns and is thought to come from the name griddlegate, meaning irongate.
