Re: coach house, ascot way (broad oak fold)

I have done a map overlay in google earth to show the broad oak fold area from this late 1800's map as it was. hope this is of interest.not all places overlap correctly due to scaling issues of the map and google earth.interesting to note a quarry underneath the now all weatherpitch area behind st pauls church.All but the "coach house" was bulldozed down.i remember Tommy mullhall used it for storing his ladders and lampoil for his decorating and it is said to be that he ended up buying the coach house from a mrs hardisty who never used it for around 200 in 1960's money and lived there untill his death a few years ago.underneath number ** ascot way is one of the old top stones from the old wall pictured at the entrance of the early broad oak fold.its under the floorboards and its REAL MASSIVE HUGE!!!.it had to be left there due to its weight and the house built around it .A true piece of history we sometimes take a peek at now and again rolling back the carpet.brilliant.
