Hi everyone, hope you are all okay. I was wondering if one of you clever folks would be able to help me out. I am curious to find out where Rookwood/Rookword Road would have been around 1942? I can't seem to find a road under that name, other than Rookword Close but don't know if that's the same place. Wondered if any of you geniuses would be able to help me out. Thanks in advance :)

From 1942 I reckon it was this one in St Ann's.

And if you know the exact number you're looking for...

Present day the closest equivalent is Broad Oak Close in St Ann's.

It ran between Alfred Street Central and Peas Hill Road at the St Ann's Well Road end of those two roads.  It was around the back of the former Cavendish cinema that is now IC Discounts.  Cooper Street was demolished during the regeneration of St Ann's.  The nearest road nowadays would be Thomas Close.
