About this photo

Railways had boosted industry and the city's growth from the middle of the 19th century; the expansion engulfed detached hamlets, thus creating more parishes, which were a basis for local government. Longthorpe became a separate parish in 1850. A parish to include New England was created in 1857, and St Mark's Church was built on the edge of Spital housing estate in Lincoln Road.
