Old Maps of Stacksteads

Historic Maps of Stacksteads and the local area.

I lived across the road very near to the cat steps which was a primitive path taking you up the hillside to a roadway at the top , then leading to Fearns high school.I used this path four times a day. The path is still there today.

I remember travelling on the train from Bacup to Rawtenstall and then on to Manchester where I caught a train to March in Cambridgeshire where we lived. I can remember seeing the big cotton mill which was called Ross Mill, which, I believe was big enough (if turned into flats) to house everyone in Bacup.
