Barry Ray Year: 1874 Villages: SlaughamBosworth and Rock Cottage, Slaugham (3 of 3)
The picture is of a very small fragment of a colourful map of 1874. It is interesting, and confusing, to see that Bosworth’s Farm was named as Boswells Farm on the map.
I assume that the “Hydrant” in the street is what is now known as the village tap standing outside the old post office. (See picture #211) I wonder what the so-called hydrant looked like when the map was surveyed 144 years ago!
Am I correct in saying that the benchmark on the church is surely still there?
