I am a novice on my computor, but I am learning and keep using it to find maps/information and history of places/place names.
I was trying to find out how the name "Ladder" hill got its name when I stumbled on your web site, I was staggered at the amount of information and remain grateful for making it available to amateurs like myself.
Many thanks,
