This extract from the 1907 ordnance survey map of Hindley illustrates the location of De Trafford farm. Although the farm isn't actually named on the map it seems likely that it may have been the group of buildings in the vicinity of the area marked 714. The section of track labelled Amberswood East curve, is , I believe, the location of a train wreck which occurred in July 1900, when a passenger train returning from Blackpool to Yorkshire derailed and plunged down the embankment, killing the driver and one of the passengers, and injuring a further 25 of the remaining passengers.
