Tithe Maps

Bourne Hill and Hall

Unfortunately none of the tithe maps go as far as the Bourne Hill area.

Danes Pad

Many thanks go to Lancashire Records Office (now Lancashire Archives) for permission to use these images.

Taking the suggested OS Danes Pad route as a starting point, the maps below have been taken from various tithe maps of the area. Most Tithe maps are not orientated N/S and some of the images have become a little mixed up. If you feel that the caption to images are wrong please contact the webmaster. At some stage I will Photoshop the Danes Pad route over the top of the Tithe Maps.

Little and Great Plumpton. The proposed Preston and Wyre Railway is shown on the top-right of the image. The putative Danes Pad was supposed to go between Grreat Plumpton and the railway.

Moving north the Pad went to the East of Weeton. All three maps (including to the East) are shown for completeness.

Moving further North

Moving onto the Hardhorn with Newton area we have:-



The first three maps go from East to West. The last one is centred on St Michaels church and is to the North of the centre. By clicking on the image a higher resolution image is produced. Press ESC to return to this page.

Warren Estate Map

The Warren family owned the majority of the land around Woodplumpton for more than 200 years up until the mid-1800's. In our research into the origins of Hollowforth mill we discovered that various estate maps were produced. One such map is shown below and thanks must be given to Cheshire Archives and Local Studies for their permission to reproduce the image.

The map below (Cheshire Archive Code:DVE 3756/10 (part)) is dated 1805 as far as the tenants are concerned. However the canal has been drawn in later so this must take the original back to the 1790's.

Now to go further back in time. The next six images are for the same area in 1770. In look they are very similar to the tithe maps but 70 or 80 years earlier. The Cheshire Archives and Local Studies code is DLT 4996/40/10.

The next set of images shows the field names and the tenants. The Cheshire Archives and Local Studies code again is DLT 4996/40/10.


For us, in our research for Hollowforth Mill. The following sections are more relevant.


In order to marry these images with more modern maps the following image has been annotated.
