Highland Laddie, Junction Street, Miles Platting. (c) Adshead at Digital Archives .
The Highland Laddie stood on the corner of New Allen Street and Junction Street, just off Oldham Road in Miles Platting. Adshead's 1851 Map No.21 shows how significant the railway was back in the mid-1800s compared to today. The other change here is that Junction Street has been swallowed up by New Allen Street and council houses stand on street facing the railway arches.
