History
'Windy Arbour farm is still to be found in its original location although the building is not original. According to Parrot in 1733, the scenic walk to one side of the farm used to be the main Tunstall post road, which was two carts wide and so busy that it hollowed out with banks rising on either side and had to be turnpiked. It ran from what is now Tollgate Close up towards Red Street and beyond. At its end is the remains of the railway bridge, owned by Ralph Sneyd in the 1860s, which carried coal from the collieries up to Chatterley Valley. It was also likely to be a Roman road originally, as names that have arbour in tend to have Roman origins.' Source: (visit link)
