Hi Stuart, thank you for the information - all I can tell you is that there is a lot of info’ given with this map. It is in 4 parts, or “quads”, and the date given for this “quad” the SW which includes Wigan and its surroundings is 1858, the three other quads which make up this map of Lancashire are 1854 for NE Lancs, 1852 for NW Lancs quad and 1859 for the SE Lancs quad. The map was published in 1870 and the survey maps were published from 1805 to 1870 and frequently updated - these sheets, it says, range from 1848 to 1870.
Very interesting, however do you have any of Platt Bridge?
