Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Wakefield in 1850

If you're using the old maps at the National Library of Scotland, you'll often find that it's the later ones that have most street names. So for Wakefield, see this one:

https://maps.nls.uk/view/100948319

From the cathedral in the town centre, Kirkgate runs south and Westgate runs west.

If you've ever caught a train to or from Wakefield you may well have needed to know about this: Westgate and Kirkgate are the names of the two railway stations, serving different routes.

Just to add to the West and Kirk gates confusion, the road in front of the Cathedral is on a straight hill as one road, adjacent on this hill, top side of the Cathedral is Northgate, in front of the Cathedral is Kirkgate, that does a sharp right turn at the bottom of the hill to run out of the city by the river Calder bridge.
The topside of the hill above the Cathedral is Westgate (Being one straight road with Kirkgate the bottom half of the hill0 ) and could be mistaken as either Westgate or Kirkgate as a continues row of buildings in 1830  at the 'T' junction opposite Northgate.
