1829 Liverpool & Manchester Railway map

This ‘1829’ map (see below) is interesting as clearly many of our present railway lines are missing from it, although the map must have been drawn later as the Liverpool through Kirkby line (Liverpool & Bury Railway) is also depicted (as are other lines) and that did not open until 1845.

Look how Lydiate is spelt (you’ll need to zoom in on the photo) – LIDIATE
