I have a question.

Postby Amberlyn2017 » Mon Jun 26, 2017 11:48 pm

Hello everyone, i'm new here and i was hoping somebody might be able to answer a question i've been trying to find out about.

Wiles Street in Gorton.

I know the houses were demolished but what became of the street itself?
Was it renamed?
Or has it completely gone?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, I can't answer myself but in case no one else can either, in the past I've found the Local Studies centre or Archives in the area you're interested in very helpful. I had similar questions about roads in Camden and the folks there were excellent. Good luck.

I am afraid it's completely gone and is a green field now.
It used to be off Gorton Lane between Preston Street and the railway line.
You can view the location on Google maps.
There is a green tree symbol for Debdale Park on the map where Gorton St crosses the railway, Wiles St was in the blank square between Gorton Parks Nursing Home and Gorton Street.

If you want to see an old map with it displayed see
http://maps.nls.uk/view/101103821

Look down the right hand side of the map to Lat 58 degrees 28' (minutes)
To the left is Gorton Foundry and a 200 in red Wiles Street is a little above the red 200
