Rawtenstall Reference library might have a copy or the Rossendale Council planning dept

Re: Map of waterfoot in 1820

There is a useful book published in 1928 by John Hargreaves entitled "The history of roads in Rawtenstall & District" and there are a few copies in Rawtenstall Library reference department.

A trip down there should give you the answers

Have a look on the Lancs CC MARIO MAPS website, there are a few maps covering the Waterfoot area, but can't remember how far back they go....

Re: Map of waterfoot in 1820

The road along the valley bottom that we now know as Bacup Road was completed in the mid 1820s(1826/1827). Before this road was built the main Highway from Rawtenstall to Bacup was from Rawtenstall Fold (Tup Bridge), over Higher Cloughfold to Newchurch then down Turnpike into Boothfold. From Boothfold the road went up Booth Road and past Fearns Hall to Stacksteads Toll Bar where it then went over Huttock End and along Newchurch Old Road to Bankside before dropping down into Bacup centre.

There was another Highway from Boothfold (Jolly Sailor) which went down Miller Barn Lane and over the River Irwell onto Copwe Road, then up through Cowpe village and Higher Boarsgreave to meet Rooley Moor Road for people travelling from Waterfoot to Rochdale.

Re: Map of waterfoot in 1820

To add to my previous post - it may have been possible to get from Hugh Mill to Rakehead using Carr Lane, Tenterheads, Heyes and Royds Road but I don't think this would have been considered a main highway.
