Illegible Record
« on: Sunday 19 April 20 17:22 BST (UK) »
The attached screen shot of a census record seems to read, Oswestry Road.......and then? I'm hoping  that someone familiar with the area might be able to identify the full entry.

Looking at other census years, I think it is Tinkers Green. 180 acres in 1861 (James Edwards), 176 acres in 1871 (Joseph Jackson)

There was a railway station nearby https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tinkers-Green-Railway-Station-Photo-Whittington-Oswestry-Cambrian-Rly-1-/263345900670
