Coldhurst  Lancashire


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

COLDHURST, a chapelry in Oldham township, Prestwich parish, Lancashire; in the north-eastern neighbourhood of Manchester. It was constituted in 1844. Post town, Oldham. Pop., 3, 046. Houses, 555. The living is a vicarage in-the diocese of Manchester. Value, £150. Patron, alternately the Crown and the Bishop. The church is good.

The location is where the name "Coldhurst" appears on the modern 1:25,000 map. "Coldhurst Hall" is marked nearby on our nineteenth century First Series map, somewhat illegibly. Additional information about this locality is available for Oldham
