Exclamation Old Accrington

Could anyone tell me if Leamings/Leemings Pad (path) is still there? It used to run from Sandy Lane to the top of Plantation St, with a derelict white painted farm about half way

Re: Old Accrington

I’m sure someone on here will be able to answer your question but comparing the old OS map extract with an extract from Google maps, there’s a footpath that ran between Sandy Lane and upper Plantation St, past Field House (farm?), which today seems to mark the eastern extent of ‘new’ housing built off Wensleydale Drive.

That farm weren't there even in the 70's, but I remember the path.

Re: Old Accrington

The path was certainly there in '48/9 and the farm building. When we walked along that path the field to the west was an almost fully grown wheat field, had some explaining to do when I got ready for bed that night as to where the wheat had come from.
