TOP:
Looking at the west end of Football with access from Harper Lane.
It was proposed that the street name be changed to Northfield Terrace but the residents resisted and Football stayed.
The gable end of number 2 which faces on to Harper Lane is painted with a giant football, a noticeable landmark.

BOTTOM:
This is the east end of Football, looking towards Harper Lane.
It is a long road of stone built terrace houses with a few modern in-fills, given appropriate names like "Offside".
Supposedly called Football because this road and the adjoining South View Terrace were built on land where football had been played or led to fields where the game had been practiced.
