Little Sankey  Lancashire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Little Sankey like this:

SANKEY (Little), a parcel in Warrington township, Lancashire; near Great Sankey.

The location is where the name "Lt. Sankey Green" appears on the OS First Series one inch map. The name "Little Sankey" appears much more clearly at the same location on the original OS six inch (1:10,560) map.
