Bulmers Directory 1895

Just updated some more information from Bulmers Directory for 1895.  It is full of information on Old, New and Whittington Moor.

Whittington was growing rapidly in 1895 thanks to the new industries.  Houses had been built at New Whittington and Sheepbridge/Brushes area to accommodate the workers who came from all over England to work at Sheepbridge and in the coal fields.   Shops and businesses had sprung up to provide services for the ever increasing population.

Many names that are still familiar in the area are listed in the directory.

If you are interested in finding out more, or if you had ancestors in Whittington in 1895 you can look at the transcribed Old Whittington entries here
