I have a particular interest in the history of Goosemoor Lane as it seems my ancesters (called 'Ginster') lived there. At the time I understand it was somewhat rural...
Curiously, in at least 1881 - 1891 they had a business manufacturing manure there! It seems that the the phrase 'where there is muck there is brass' would apply to my lot!
Does any one have access to records that show this sort of thing? What is the best map to go for?
I hope that you can help me.
