THE 1850 MAP

This shows Middlewich before the railway. All canals have been constructed, the Middlewich branch by 1829 and the Wardle Canal by 1833. The suggested alternative routes for the Middlewich Branch are indicated and the Turnpike Roads are shown. The background is the 1840s Tithe Apportionment map with the same housing and street pattern depicted on the 1778 survey and salt works listed in Bagshaw’s 1850 Directory.
