I’ve been testing out Google Maps to plot all the lost houses for the pages on the farms that were demolished following Stockport Corporation’s compulsory purchase of the Errwood Estate to build the twin reservoirs (view page).
And although I have more than a few reservations about the Internet behemoth and its all-seeing digital eye, it does seem to work well. Click the link below to view progress so far.
As well as the lost houses, I’ve included all the car parks, as well as other places of interest, such as Jenkin Chapel, Goytsclough Paint Mill and the Fernilee Gunpowder Factory. The next stage is to try and add the walks featured on this site.
Please let me know if you think it can be improved in any way.
