Rawenstall inner relief road. 2 parts with plans
|Location||National Archives (see all files stored here)|
|File base||Series MT, subseries MT 139|
Note misspelling of Rawtenstall in the title. The front of the document has it spelt correctly though so maybe a typo by whoever entered it on the computer.
I ordered this file on the off chance that something bigger may have been planned for this road. The word 'plans' in the title also enticed me a little.
My heart sank as soon as I saw the front of the file. The words 'compulsory purchase' and lack of an envelope full of maps meant I knew this file wasn't worth my time. The only plans were those that show which parcels of land are required for the road. The documentation is a boring list of all the landowners and tenants affected.
I'm beginning to realise that virtually everything in the MT 139 category concerns only planning blight or purchase of property and any plans simply relate to the outline of parcels of land rather than any road or junction layouts.
