Ossett Pictures - 1787 Ossett Map

Previous | Home | Next

This map is part of a larger 1787 map by John Carey and shows how relatively small Ossett was in those days. In 1801 there were only 3,424 people living in Ossett. There is no sign of Gawthorpe but there appears to be a reasonably sized hamlet at Streetside on the old Halifax to Wakefield turnpike.
