Description

1945 Map of our area taken from the http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/maps/ website.

The map illustrates that the Snapethorpe Gate estate was NOT built on greenfields, it was built on the grounds of Snapethorpe Hospital (previously City of Wakefield Fever Hospital) dating back at least 100 years.

Also, Milton Road/Crescent is also shown as being an old development.
