Mapperley Crossroads - St Wilfrid's Road

You see this if you drive from Mapperley to the crossroads with High Lane West and High Lane Central. It is the corner of St Wilfred's Road and High Lane West. The nearest house was the home of the Hart sometimes called Hartshorne family. The daughter Doris had the house pulled down and a bungalow built in its place when her parents died some years ago.

The second house next to it was where the milkman Maurice Stevens lived and it is still there.

(The photograph was owned by Frank Hartshorne who recently passed away. His daughter Carole Hartshorne very kindly donated it to us. The information about this photograph was supplied by Brenda Parker, who remains a great source of information) April 2017.

Mapperley Crossroads as we know it today was constructed in 1838. On completion it was known as “Four Lane Ends”. The main road, called the High Lane, was a continuous road from the Nutbrook Boundary (West Hallam/Ilkeston), Straws Bridge, leading to the West Hallam Common Lane. (Mill Garage Crossroads). It is now split into East, Central and West The lane leading to Mapperley village was named “Mapperley Sick Lane”. On the opposite side, the lane leading to West Hallam village was named “Hurton’s Lane”. Now named St. Wilfrid’s Road.
