Re: Clarks of Broad Oak Farm

Thanks Anzac, that answers a lot but also poses further questions about the area. To the left of the picture there appears to be a railway marshalling yard which is far more complex than I have seen on more recent maps and photos.
Was the map on the internet or part of a private collection? I would like to establish the copyright owner if possible.
Is the map you posted complete or have you only scanned a small sample of it?

Re: Clarks of Broad Oak Farm

It's from a map (Large Scale) I bought off e.bay some time ago. Someone who owned it has written quite a few interesting bits on it in pencil. The picture is only a small section of the map.

Re: Clarks of Broad Oak Farm

Well thank you for sharing it with us - it has cleared up a few things but added more to the pile of things to discover.

Re: Clarks of Broad Oak Farm

Following a lot more research we have now got even more questions about the wider area and with a bit of luck, some of you may be interested enough to put your thinking caps on.

When was Rising Bridge Working Men's Club built?
Where was the pit head of Baxenden Colliery or perhaps there were a few.
What were all the railway sidings for at the back of what is now Hollands Pies?
Does anyone know what kind of mill, Lower Mill at Baxenden was?
