Colsterworth Terrace, Glebe St, Medders

Recommended Posts

Sorry to have to keep doing this but I am just wanting to know where a few places are. I keep Googling and and find bits of maps with red arrows on them and think - aaaah CliffTon. Low and behold its a link to this site!

Does anyone know where Colsterworth Terrace, Glebe St, Medders was please? Early 1900's

Why me :cool:

Surprised to find it's even marked on the map, because a lot of the Terraces don't get a specific mention. The Church on the left has survived, St Saviours.

Thanks. Do you find these maps online or are they paper maps that you have?

It's a mixture of both. I have a large collection of "stuff"; some in the real world, some in the virtual world.

We lived pretty close to you then Den, I lived in Ryehill Cottages up until we were relocated to Clifton, pre that, just around the corner on Kirke-White St when I was single living with my parents.

I lived at the bottom of Colsterworth Terrace and I was in the same class as Susan Cumberpatch at Arkwright.

One of her brothers drowned in the canal after falling off the wall. I can remember the Truelove family at number 1 and the first girl I ever fancied Pamela Condran at number 17.

If history had followed correct procedure my surname would be Cumberpatch. My great grandfather was William Jeyes Cumberpatch of 3 Colsterworth Terrace. He died 1926 aged 61. He never married but was the father of Mary Harveys offsprings. She was my Great grandmother - for what she was worth!
