Springfield Lane Salford
« on: Monday 05 April 10 17:01 BST (UK) »
Hello,
My family lived in Springfield Lane Salford in 1861.The only reference I can find is Urban Splash!!!!
Does any one happen to know where Springfield Lane was, what type of housing was there, any map references to it etc etc.
I'm very interested in the social conditions of the time. The father and sons were all either plasterers or sawyers.
can anyone help.
All the best
Carolyn.

From the 1871 enumerators walk it appears to junction with East Philip St.  It seems to be quite a long lane and there is also a mention of Bridgewater St

Why don't you turn up the 1861 image and then page backwards and forwards to see the names of other roads/streets

According to an 1830's map i have, Springfield lane was 572 yards long, and ran off Broughton road Green gate.

Springfield Lane originally ran from Greengate in a n.w direction prettywell parallel with the River Irwell until it joined up with Sussex Street just beyond the bridge over the River Irwell, today a small portion of it still exists today in the Blackfriars area.

Hi Carolyn

According to Slater's 1863 Directory, it appears to have been a bit of a 'High Street'.
There were quite a few shopkeepers and many tradesmen listed.

It would have been one of the 'Main' roads of it's time

Hello Eric,
I can't thank you enough, I'm forever forgetting directories. My family are listed there at 43 Springfiled.
Many, many thanks.
Carolyn.

Hello there.    I lived in Springfield Lane Salford From 1930 till 1960   Our House  was one of a block of four between The Lord Nelson Pub and the corner shop.  There were other railway flats higher up towards Greengate.
Our houses were directly across the river Irwell from Strangeways Prison.
Our houses were pulled down so that the Irwell could be re-routed to stop flooding.
