How has Woodley changed since 1841?

In Year 5, we have been learning all about our local area and how the land use has changed over time since 1841. Who can remember what the biggest changes to our local area over the past 175 years have been and why did we think these changes occurred?

See if you can find your house on the Cheshire Archives Website and look at how your immediate area has changed.

Take a look at the maps we used in class to see the changes for yourself!
