Terraces in Lostock Hall
In the 1911 Census, addresses were commonly given according to terrace names rather than street names. Some of these terraces can still be identified from plaques, but some plaques have been removed and some terraces have been demolished to be replaced by new developments.
Terraces that still have plaques are:
CATON TERRACE (412 – 426 Leyland Road)
HESKIN TERRACE (Leyland Road between Coote Lane and Harold Terrace)
VICTORIA TERRACE (Spar to Coote Lane) Plaque above KFC
HAROLD TERRACE (Road sign only)
BEACONSFIELD TERRACE (16 – 26 Watkin Lane) above Fry Inn
ALEXANDRIA TERRACE AD 1882 (37 – 57 Watkin Lane)
STEPHENSON TERRACE 1890 (28 – 38 Watkin Lane)
ALMOND TERRACE (100 – 110 Watkin Lane)
GREEN BANK TERRACE (112 – 116 Watkin Lane)

Terraces with plaques removed that still exist are:
LUPTON TERRACE (465 – 479 Leyland Road)
BEECH TERRACE (5 – 9 Croston Road)

CARRINGTON TERRACE – the first terrace on the left as you go up Croston Road from the village centre.
GARFIELD TERRACE – the last terrace on the right hand side of Croston Road before you go under the railway bridge, opposite the Anchor pub.
Other Terraces that existed at one time or other in the past were:

DOVER, LONSDALE (no link to Lonsdale Chase or Mews), PARK, PROSPECT AND SOUTH.
