Keys to the Past

Haswell (Haswell)

The parallel alignment and proximity of two former field boundaries shown on the 1898 and 1922 OS maps are suggestive of a former wagonway or roadway extending north-west from 'Haswell Junction'. It appears to align with the path of a former railway to the south-east, recorded on the 1st and 2nd edition maps.
