Like the others have said you won't find it on a map because it'll just be a name embedded in a stone somewhere in the wall of the terrace. I can think of half a dozen named terraces going up manchester road for instance. I'm fairly sure it was either the stretch of Burnley road that was torn down to make way for east gate with only half a dozen buildings still standing or the ugly curved building on the corner opposite broadway pub. It's easier to work out when you look at the fuller description of the enumeration district. Bearing in mind their description is, literally, the path they walked collecting the details.

They go from infant street past heifer bank etc to "Whalley Road east side from Avenue Parade to Water st, Primitive Methodist chapel and Back Avenue Parade, Water street south side to Melbourne Street, Melbourne street from Water street to Avenue parade , Avenue Parade both sides to Abbey St, part of Burnley road called Loder Terrace. "

The thick black line is a ward boundary he wouldn't have gone to the left of.
