Yes, there is a problem when place names go out of common use.

A 3rd series, sheet 2 OS 1" map I have dated 1976 shows it!

How to handle such info on the page?

If anyone has additions to this page, please send them to me (off-list
please). It's quite possible to do a description.historical account on a
separate page and link to it. But I need listers to do the write ups as I
don't have the info!
