Developments in Glossopdale & Longdendale in the Second Quarter of the 19th Century.

The second quarter of the 19th century was one of significant change in the Ancient Parish of Glossop and in Longdendale. During approximately the same period, Samuel Lewis published seven editions of his Topographical Dictionary of England. Reference to the first edition (published in 1831) and the last edition (published in 1849) enables a brief analysis illustrating the extent of the change.
