Mill Bridge  West Riding

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Mill Bridge like this:

MILLBRIDGE, a hamlet in Liversedge chapelry, Birstall parish, W. R. Yorkshire; 6½ miles NNW of Huddersfield. It has a post office under Leeds; and carries on industry in iron-founding, in card-making, and in Turkey carpet and rug and woollen mills.

The location is where the name "Mill Bridge" appears both on our First Series one inch map and more clearly on the Ordnance Survey 1:10,560 map of Yorkshire of 1854-5, accessible on the old-maps.co.uk site. Additional information about this locality is available for Liversedge
