  • Here are the details of maps for Dukinfield:

  • Cheshire Sheet 3.09a Dukinfield (North) 1896 - published 2010; intro by Chris Makepeace. ISBN.978-1-84784-375-3
  • Cheshire Sheet 3.09b Ashton & Dukinfield 1907 - published 1994; intro by Mike Pavasovic. ISBN.978-0-85054-648-4

    We have published two versions of this map, showing how Dukinfield developed over those years. Please note, however, that on the 1896 version, Lancashire is left blank. If you are only buying one version, therefore, we recommend the 1907 edition.

    The 1896 map is quite an eccentric publication, as it is blank north of the zigzagging county boundary. However, the Cheshire area, covering much of Dukinfield, is full of interest. Features here include Market Place area, Dukinfield Lodge, Cemetery, Oxford Road Mills, Sandy Vale Print Works, Wellington Mills, Tame Valley Mills, stretches of railway crossing and recrossing the county boundary, two Dukinfield stations, St Mark's church, Chapel Pits, Bridge Eye Mills, etc. On the reverse we include a commercial directory of Dukinfield in 1898.

    The 1907 version has all this, albeit a decade later, but also includes much of Ashton under Lyne, with coverage extending northward to Ashton Market Place and westward to St Peter's church. Features in Ashton include Empire Hippodrome, tramways, numerous mills, St Michael's church, Albion School, Park Parade station, good stretches of the GCR, LNWR and L&Y railways, Henry Square area, etc.

    The map links up with Cheshire sheet 3.10 Stalybridge to the east and 3.13 Dukinfield South to the south; also with the Lancashire maps of Ashton, Stalybridge and Guide Bridge.
