A company called Alan Godfrey maps - they have a website - do very good reprints of the 1901/2 OS maps, which for cities have street names, as well as detail which shows individual houses.

Lord Street and Ann St were either side of Lower Moss Lane, which is still there, but a bit shorter than it used to be. There is a Lordsmead St now which is roughly where Lord St was.  

I found Rob Roy Court in the index of an old A-Z, but couldn't find it on the map! Think it must be very small. However I can se a Walter St and a Scott St, so it must be around there somewhere.  ;D

Try asking for Lordsmead St on the Old Maps website. http://www.old-maps.co.uk/IndexMapPage2.aspx   Should give you the right co-ordinates for Lord St/Ann St

Hi Pricey4848

It's not a case we don't have any maps but a case of copyright issues of placing any type/bit of any map on rootschat.  :(

Your best bet, is as said earlier Godfrey Maps, here is the website

Does anyone know where Upper Baxter Street, Hulme was?  Also to Pricey4848 - I see you have the name Foy in your names, I have the names William and Dinah Foy appearing as witnesses on a marriage certificate of my great-grandparents in 1873 could there be any connection?

Hi Pricey

Do any of your Prices have origins or connections to Whitchurch in Shropshire or connections to the Tattersall family?

Regards Eric.

daisynook-- Baxter St. Hulme, was at right angles to St.George`s St. and River St. between Leaf St. and Edge St.  I can`t find an Upper Baxter St.On an older map there is a BaxterSt. between East St. and Leaf St.   presumably the name Edge  changed. It was at right angles to George St. and Worcester St.Quite close to City Road and Whitworth St.West. Hope this helps Viktoria.

Rob Roy Court was part of the Cavalry Barracks close to the hospital on its east side. It ran into the west side of Lord street. Later maps dont give its name but the location is still there. I have saved you this section of the map showing the court name, is there a way you can e-mail me?

This is my first time on here so a bit in awe.
I am trying to find Red Bank in Hulme. I have the Alan Godfrey map for St George's  and it isn't on so I am at a loss.  Would like to find it as all family were dyers/stiffeners and may help with where there they worked.

Welcome to you, brillo  :)

Red Bank, as far as I know, was around the bottom of Cheetham Hill Road/Corporation Street - not far from Victoria Station.

It can be seen on modern Google maps.
Any queries - just post and someone will be there to help (if possible)
kind regards
heywood  :)

Red Bank is not in Hulme. Its to the north east of Victoria railway station and the Manchester cathedral.

The map section I have is to large a file even though its a JPEG. Try contacting me at
(*) - by using PM system

Where did you see Red Bank Hulme?

About 15 minutes walk to the north east of Red Bank there is or was a St Georges church in the Collyhurst area. East of this church is the suburb of Ancoats with lots of industry and dye works.

Hello again,

if you are still local, it's somewhere around where all the new flats have been built at the roundabout near the MEN arena and the bottom of Cheetham Hill Road.

good luck  :)

Hello Brillo, yes as the previous Rootschatter has said Red Bank was on the west edge of the  area known as Angel Meadow and ran parallel to Danzig St.
The railway ran between also the River Irk. There was a St. George`s church  fairly close by, to be exact St, George`s in The Fields.It was first on Rochdale Road which was known  in the 1800`s as as St. George`s Road. The road was altered probably to accommodate railway arches and St. George`s was demolished and rebuilt on Oldham Road.St. George`s road was renamed as Rochdale Road.

Red Bank is still there, somewhat altered as development has taken place.

Hi Brillo

No shortage of Dye Works in that area. The River Irk was  favourite with their ilk-the full length. There were quite a few on the other side from Red Bank, on Collyhurst Rd.

Eric.

Even in the 1950's this river ran in many colours I saw this from working in a machine shop high up on its banks on Collyhurst road. As a matter of fact we saw a couple of Swans on this river that looked like they had army camouflage painted on them. This was from the water pumped out by the  ICI dyeworks in Crumpsall (Blackley)

Thanks for lots of information. I am no longer local but have some good maps and have found Red Bank. Ancestor lived there and was Dyer and Stiffener. Confusion because on all maps St George's ED is part of Hulme.
