One of seats of the Earls of Bradford was Weston Park, Shropshire, and so with many other street names in the town, we are brought back again to the family of one of the lords of the manor of Great Britain before the Enclosure Act of 1792, ant to the rent rolls which the family used to draw from the town.Weston St was named after Weston park, but the Weston St of today is the second of the name.The first street of the name was the lower end of Derby st and the upper portion of Great Moor St, from Fletcher St to Blackhorse St.As a matter of fact that particular Weston st was planned at the time (about 1792) to extend across the town in a straight line to a point in Bradshawgate about Fold St. Thus it would have cut diagonally across Newport st, Mawdsley st, and Bowkers Row. It would have made a fine direct approach from the south west to the Parish Church. The scheme failed to eventuate, however, and the town centre developed without regard for planning.When the present Weston st from Rishton lane to Manchester rd was made there were two Weston streets in the town until the former one surrendered it's name. Up to the 60s and 70s it was a street of mills with the Bolton to Manchester railway bridged over a portion of it as the photo above shows.
