It's worth looking closely this map of Doffcocker in about 1846 (here's the original) Compare it with the sketch map made by the late Derek Billington, shown below.
Points to consider when doing your own research:
- Huge bleach works existed at Wallsuches and Moss Bank Park by this date
- Spinning 'factories' of the 1760s-90s were often not powered. They often comprised a collection of manually-operated Jennies or Mules in relatively small buildings, often re-purposed farm buildings
- All cloth was hand-woven. Houses that still exist at Lord's Fold and Caley Street (originally Green Lane), as well as the demolished hamlet of Doffcocker, would have contained their own loomshop where part of the household worked, whilst others spun yarn in the 'factories' or went into the bleachworks.
