This 1908 map shows the position of Delph House, long since demolished, I guess in the 1930s. The road marked TRAMWAY is Poolstock Lane, so Delph House, the one on a recent photo, was on the corner of Poolstock Lane and Warrington Road. Sadly Delph House Farm, which is also shown on the map, was also demolished two or three years ago and houses are now being built on the site. Delph House Farm was the one on the corner of Cranfield Road and Marus Avenue.

Thanks for that Cathy. As I mentioned on the other post, Delph House farm was still standing, although it was falling to bits, at Easter last year. At least I know where Delph house was now.
