Does anyone know if there is or was a Stanhope St in Burnley in 1911? I have a relative who lived there, but the only one I can find is in Worsthorne.

It's still in existence, Gill, see Googlemaps.

Off Royle Rd (east), a cul de sac, near the station. Many other streets around have gone in redevelopment.

Interestingly, I first looked in my 1953 directory. Houses 2 to 26, evens only. Of these 13 houses, only 7 are apparently occupied, suggesting the houses might be about to be knocked down. Maybe they were. We need to have a look, but I'm 200 miles off, and I think you are too !

Thanks for that Rex. Unfortunately I've made a boob. I've looked again and it looks like Stanworth St.

Stanworth st is (is or was) part of Elm st. I think it was just above Old Hall St.

I cannot believe I have only just seen your reply. That would make sense because he had relatives in Devoshire Rd and Hurtley St. Thankyue very much,

Stanworth Street was demolished years ago, it was between Elm Street and Travis Street. My Dad had a coal round and delivered on there. We lived on Milner Street.

Thankyou. Can you tell me if anything has been built on the site.

hi,

yes, sort of, if you look on google maps you will see that there is a building which is named Bean Good Coffee. It used to be a health centre. Stanworth Street was on the land which is now grassed over.

The big building on Elm Street used to be Lucas and is now a business centre.
