In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Deansgate like this:
KNOTT-MILL, a railway station, with telegraph, in Manchester; on the South Junction railway, at the forking of the lines toward Altrincham and toward Liverpool, adjacent to the Bridgewater viaduct, in the W part of the city.
The location is that of Deansgate station, previously called Knott Mill. Additional information about this locality is available for Manchester
