Full Description

The Tithe Map for Winsford shows that Ash Lane originally continued eastwards from c. SS 9059 3491, north of the Winn Brook, south of Bridge Cottage and across to the older section of the Exford Road at SS 9061 3492. The latter forded the Winn Brook at the site of the present bridge MSO8547. It does not appear that the footbridge (MEM23597) was present at this time, although there was also a ford here. [1] The 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map shows that the road had been removed by this time and the land incorporated into the garden of Bridge Cottage. [2]
