Old Maps of Cliffe

Historic Maps of Cliffe and the local area.

A fascinating picture looking south from the church. The line of houses in Turner Street can be seen in the distance, also some in Norwood corner area where our family moved to in the late 50s. On the extreme right of the picture is one of the majestic elm trees, sadly gone now, due to the ravages of Dutch Elm disease. The trees were such a feature of the village landscape in those days.

They had six daughters Sarah born 1880,Violet 1883 Mabel 1887, Edith 1890, Clara 1892,and Daisy 1895 my grandmother.
