Mapping Huthwaite Developments

1933 Huthwaite Urban District

Claimed year given 1921 covering this Huthwaite Urban District can now be quite accurately dated at 1933. That year not only built a Smallpox Hospital shown mapped atop Strawberry Bank, but it also just predates the Chesterfield Road Council housing scheme, plus opening of a Huthwaite Park that covered the Brick Works below New Kiln Lane. Surrounding meadows are confusingly still called Hucknall-under-Huthwaite, but dating now suggest this map was drawn up by another council looking to enlarge Sutton boundaries.
