Where is LANE ENDS in Sutton?
Hi, can anyone tell me the location of LANE ENDS in Sutton-in-Craven please? Is it a row of houses?

On the 1891 census the recorded street/house names run in sequential order as follows:

Bent Lane
Low Jack Field
High Malsis
Malsis Coach house
Malsis Hall
New Hall
Lane Ends
Dog & Gun Public House
Malsis Lodge
Sutton Fields

Does anyone happen to have an old photo of Lane Ends? Thanks :-)

It's the next farm on the right after New Hall Farm on Colne Road, Malsis. As well as an access from Colne Road there is also one from Lane Ends Lane, Cowling. The farm is right on the edge of the old township, one step and you've strayed into Cowin Heead.

Hi Andrew

The Lane Ends area is on the border between Sutton and Cowling, mainly in Cowling. Lower Lane Ends Farm is in Sutton (for the time being - it will be in Cowling if the proposed boundary changes ever go ahead).

Search Google Maps for BD22 0JU, Lane Ends is marked.

Thanks very much for the above information. The time period Iím interested in is the late 1800s, around the 1891 census mark. It looks like Lane Ends was within the parish boundary of Sutton at the time, but I just wanted to make certain.

Joan, Iíve now found an old postcard of Lane Ends Bridge you posted on the Cowling website. Do you happen to have any more images of Lane Ends?

Thanks again everyone

Old photo of Lane Ends Farm c1895 has now been located on the Cowlingweb (Moonrakers) site, thanks to the keen eye of the webmaster Paul.

Joan, email coming your way :-)

Our old photos on Cowlingweb old photos gallery dated c.1895(also including the one of Sutton mill dam showing Eastfield Place etc.) came from six loose pages of an old album bought from Ebay for £12 a few years ago - the photos were stuck on both sides of the pages so could not be removed - what a find? Underneath each photo was pencilled a no. which went up into the hundreds - and the possible site of each one. In the end we contacted the seller to find out if there were any more - but the rest of the album was no good she said? - it had been found in a large old house in Manningham, Bradford - probably a clearance project? Some of the scans we sent to the library in Davos Platz, Switzerland as quite a few were taken there. Some might have been taken around Malsis or Carr Head, and we still wonder if someone from there had been on a "grand tour" of the world! Still puzzled?

Rechecked - there are 8/9 photos taken in our area - one has the wrong title "Ridge Mill Bridge" -which should read "Lumb Mill Bridge" across from Malsis School. Was told it is a double bridge (not sure what that means.)

That was a very nice find Joan. Pity the rest of the album was no good as it sounds like there were hundreds of photographs, albeit many being taken from elsewhere around the world.

The photo of Lane Ends Farm c1895 could be unique and the only one is existence from that era.
