Fairywell Brook (boundary between Baguley & Timperley). The fields to the left (westwards) are in Timperley, and those to the right and the top (eastwards and northwards) are in Baguley. The name "Roundthorn", given here as the district name, was first used in the mid-1950s to describe the industrial estate newly established around the junction of Shady Lane and Floats Road, on the land of Roundthorn Farm. It wasn't, and still isn't, the name of the district, which is Baguley.

Also known, at different times, as Redbrook House (late 19th/early 20th centuries) and Rimmersdale (1950s-60s). The property is named York House on the "Geographia" local street map published in the early 1950s, presumably based on information gathered somewhat earlier.

I haven't been that way for many years - Brook's Drive was never car-friendly even in the 1960s when I was young! - but the modern map suggests that every old property in the immediate area, including this one, has now been demolished and replaced by streets of small modern houses.

I believe my father was stationed here during the war and would like to have a photo of the house.

Might not be easy - the house was pulled down a long time ago, certainly within a decade from the end of the war. I was born in 1945 and grew up about a mile away, and it'd gone by the time I was old enough to take notice. Although it was a substantial house, I don't think it was ancient, and I never recall seeing a picture of it. I do seem to recall, though, that its very substantial gateposts remained in place for a good many years, just on the bend which was created at the southern end of Brooklands Road when the roundabout was constructed.

Is this the same house John? This is just about 100M from the path connecting Shady Lane to the industrial estate.

No: the house in your picture (I don't recall if it had a name, and if it had, it isn't identified on any of the maps I've seen) used to stand on the south-western side of Shady Lane, which once ran on a fair bit further on a route which is now under the units of the present Roundthorn industrial estate, joining Floats Road at a point pretty much exactly where Dallimore Road meets Ledson Road. Roundthorn Farm was opposite, roughly where Sidcup Road joins Ledson Road. When I was really small (around the very early '50s) I seem to remember a small wooden lock-up general store right on the corner of Floats Road and Shady Lane, near the finger post!



Whereas Baguley House was a large Victorian businessman's country house at the north-east corner of the junction of Brooklands Road with Altrincham Road, at Baguley roundabout - behind where "Baguley Cottage" stands now. The large trees in the grounds to the left as you approach the roundabout from Brooklands Road used to surround its entrance.

Does anyone know the name of an old house which stood on the grounds of Fairywell Court just off Shady Lane ?

I'm not sure whereabouts on Shady Lane Fairywell Court is; I don't live in the area now, so I remember Shady Lane as it was fifty years ago and more, rather than as it is now.



You might find it helpful to take a look at the Cheshire Record Office's website. They have a web page where you can compare, on twin panes side by side, the modern map with the tithe map of c. 1840 and the Ordnance survey maps from 1875 and 1910. If you position the twin maps carefully you can compare and see what buildings, if any, used to stand on the site of the present houses and streets.



The old O.S. maps don't name every property, though - particularly on roads like Shady Lane which had quite a few small terraces and cottages. As I remember, the largest property on Shady Lane was Oldhouse Farm, which stood just south-west of the present junction of Shady Lane with Sharrington Drive.



Hope this helps a bit!

"Roundthorn" was never the name of a district; rather the name of a farm which subsequently gave its name to an industrial estate built on its land from the mid-1950s.
