Thornton Cleveleys Old Ordnance
Survey Map 1910
Lancashire Sheet 43.09; intro by Alan
Publisher: Alan Godfrey Maps
(24 Aug 2005)
This detailed map is double-sided for maximum coverage and
includes both sheets 42.12 and 43.09. (Note that the cover erroneously states
43.10.). Sheet 42.12 covers the coastal area, including Cleveleys Hydro Hotel,
Victoria Road, Beach Road, St Andrew's church, Rossall Mount, Rossall Preparatory
School. The area around Victoria Road is today's town centre, though here only
partly built up; coverage extends south to Anchorsholme Lane.
On the reverse adjacent sheet 43.09 is the main map and takes
coverage eastward to Thornton. Coverage here includes Cleveleys Park, The Towers,
Trunnah, Holmes, Burn Naze (top right corner), Marsh Mill, RC church, St Peter's
Mission Church, Christ Church, Poolfoot Farm.
These are fascinating maps, especially showing Cleveleys when
development into a seaside resort had only just begun.
The map links up with sheet 43.05 Rossall to the north and 50.04
Bispham to the south.
