  1. Hi Melita…The Prospect pub is still in use on Prospect Street. I do not know of the other pub you mentioned called the Springfield Tavern, although I believe there was a Springfield area near the Prospect so it makes sense. This area is on the doorstep of the largest textile manufactures in England at that time so it attracted a lot of people from other areas looking for work. There was Crossley carpets and Akroyden mills within 5 mins walking distance from Prospect street. It was an extremely built up area at that time. I suspect there were ties to Norfolk and the wool trade that possibly connected both places? We have a general photo of the area at around the start of the 20th century but not one of prospect Street at the time your ancestors were living there. Please use our email address to contact the society and I can forward some images to you.
