CHADDERTON 1891 COLOURED EDITION - LANCASHIRE SHEET 97.05a
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1891 version is in full colour, taken from the original OS handcoloured map.
The maps cover much of Chadderton and the western fringe of Oldham. Coverage stretches from Chadderton Park and Ferney Field eastward to Featherstall Road, and from Burnley Lane southward to Cow Hill.
Features include Hartford Iron Works, Werneth station, Stockfield Colliery, Alder Root, Westwood, Busk, tramways, Britannia Mills, Werneth Goods station, Anchor Mill, Gresham Mill, Olive Mill, Ashley Mill, Springfield Mill, Glenby Mill, Hartford Forge, Sun Mill, Palm Mill, Wren Mill, Melbourne Mills, other mills, the steep Middleton Jct & Oldham branch, Chadderton Cemetery, Springbrook Works, Ferney Field colliery (disused), Falcon Mill, Manor Mill, Westhulme Fever Hospital etc.
The map links up with sheets 96.08 Middleton to the west, 97.01 North Chadderton to the north, 97.06 Oldham to the east and 97.09 Oldham SW to the south.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
