Hi Jayno1310, There are addresses on the 1851 census records for Bent lane which could be the cottages you refer to.

Re: Culcheth, farming and the Clares

Cinder Lane lies pretty well along the line of the Risley by pass and on to Glover Road. Tuet Hill is shown on a later map as Tewitt Hill which is exactly where Pewitt Hill was shown. Seem to be getting the answers. Hi peterdee, There was a Cinder Lane just off Twiss Green Lane, It's now a driveway...

Re: Forum Closure - UPDATE

Hi Phantom, I have really enjoyed this site having gained a lot of knowledge about the local history of the village from the ex-pats, without this site wouldn't have been possible. I hope you can keep it going as not everybody uses facebook or twitter. Thank you for your time and hard work. Jeni

Re: Higher Culcheth ?

Janet, there is no "Higher Culcheth" it was all a bit of tongue-in-cheek banter. Like you said Twiss Green is the highest point in the village but there is no such address as higher Culcheth. [-X :D

Re: Mills in Culcheth?

I think Silk Weaving was done from their homes, there were two mills in the village, Daisy Bank Mill and Beech Mill but I don't know if they were silk mills at one time.
