Post ORIGINS OF STREET NAMES

Go on, ask me?  I will see if I can tell you why a particular street in Accrington has been given that name.

Post Re: ORIGINS OF STREET NAMES

Russia Street, like Swiss Street and Poland Street, was named after the countries that Mr Frederick Steiner's turkey red dyeworks in Church exported to.

I've got to be honest, I nicked that from June's excellent Accrington Uncovered site.
