Flooded Mere

When the original Haslington Hall fell into decay its moat became a mere in the centre of the Village, giving Mere Street and Mere Bank House their names. Occasionally the mere flooded as can be seen here with Daimler bus (registration M-5779) driving through on it’s way to Crewe. Note the lanterns indicating the edge of the road. The mere was filled in and built on in the 1940s.
