Old Maps of Normanton

Historic Maps of Normanton and the local area.

I lived on pontefract road at the top of goodhope row and moved to Mackinnon Avenue when compulsory purchase of the loscoe village was made for the build of the M62. The Creswells lived about half way down Mackinnon and i can remember a Gail Williams visiting them with her parents amd a younger sister who had extra an finger on each hand, I thought they emigrated to Malaysia.

I remember my Grand-dad taking me to the park in my push chair when I was about 3 years old. I used to sit and watch him play bowls with his friends. We might then go and feed the ducks in the pond before returning home.
