The Streets of Lower Gornal
The roads and streets of Lower Gornal, their past status.
This list does not include modern street names or those outside of the district.
Unless otherwise noted all these street names were listed in the 1871 Electoral Roll, earlier Census or other reliable sources.
Included are dates found of earliest references to named streets, roads etc..
It appears that before 1871, not many actual road names existed, whereas landmarks, areas, houses, pubs, etc., were usually used for directions and locations.
Other Streets named early 20th Century:
In the southern part of the Parish, some of the old roads were stopped up in mid 19th Century and replaced with a single road leading from Shut End to Lower Gornal in a more direct route:-
The Old Furnace Road.
Coney Gree Bank Road.
Bennitt's Warehouse Road, (390 yards long). Bennitt's Warehouse:- 'converted into and occupied as schools in connection with Lower Gornal Church'.
Shut End Bank Road.
