I’ve now added a series of maps to accompany the tithe schedule for Fishwick that I had already put on line. The information is based on the greatly appreciated contribution of the volunteers working on the tithe schedules project for the Lancashire Place Name Survey. One interesting discovery was the preservation in field names and field boundaries of the pre-turnpike route into Preston from Walton-le-Dale.
