Old Maps of Essington

Historic Maps of Essington and the local area.

I used to stay with a school friend in Sneyd Lane Essington when I was about 14. We went to Ely House School in Wolverhampton. We used to go riding somewhere around there and our friend Sylvia Merrick also lived in Essington. If any one knows of Elizabeth Perfect please let me know. I also remember a Michael Hinks who also lived in Sneyd Lane.

The building still stands, though in the 1990s the Hotel closed and has been converted into flats. The view from across the junction of the Hanley and Wells Roads is still, however, substantially the same.
