Thanks jouell. I thought the booklet I have containing OS maps must be accurate. As I said, on the old maps website when you click on a map of the area from the 1970s, the houses on Woodedge (and some of the houses on the opp side of Skitters also) aren't there for some reason. Seems like that particular map site is providing the wrong maps. Just a mish mash of maps from somewhat dubious sources to me. One map is in Russian.
It's always wise to check out an official, physical OS map first.
Speaking of maps, but anyone know where I can find a site that has serial views of the area?. I remember seeing a photo on the Bryn album in here showing the old shops and Bryn surgery from the early 80s, taken from a plane. Where do people get these images from?.
