Hi Everyone My partner and I live on Norman Place Road. We'd love to know a little more about the history of the road and area. Is there an area already on this site discussing this sort of thing? I'd love to see some old photos, I don't seem to be able to find any online. James

Hello Jamesk and welcome back. Looking at the old maps of the area (1930's) Norman Place Rd was not there. It links Hollyfast Rd to Brownshill Green Rd, I am not sure about the name and how it came to be called that. Birch-field, and Maple-ton are trees, Dun-croft as in Woodland Croft also gives the idea of trees in that area before the building started. Someone on here will know. Hope it helps a little. Cheers
Always looking forward to looking at the past.

My auntie said it used to be a farm - here is a link for you. I originate from Sadler Road and I always knew it was part of farm land. Normangreen is mentioned - scroll down to general history, third paragraph.
