This map gives an indication of how the Wimborne Road in central Kinson once looked before 1800. The Dolphin Inn has changed to Gulliver`s Tavern. 930 became a School and is now the registered Kinson Village Green.

168 is Kinson cottage/House, where Isaac and Elizabeth Gulliver once lived in the heart of Kinson Village. Apart from scores of ponies trotting through the night, the 400+ inhabitants of the Parish of Kinson enjoyed life in the slow lane.

Today, many thousands of vehicles pass through Kinson Village daily.


Bear Cross to Kinson







This map dates to the 1800s, covering an area from Bear Two Acres to almost the door of Gulliver`s Tavern.


Central Kinson


 


Another map showing ancient field names covering an area from Bear Cross to where East Howe Lane meets the busy Wimborne Road.



Canford Estate map before 1800



 

In the north, Stoney Close is now covered by shops and homes. Kinson school also occupies this land and Amey`s Close next door.

A part of Hill Close by Poole Lane has been built on. Long Close lives on as Poole Lane Meadows. The Wood and furze is greatly reduced and an important remnant is known now as Blanchard`s Copse.

People wouldn`t remember the Redgate Moor or Long Moor of ancient times. Moving southwards, much of the central area of the map is now named Kinson Common. Townsend is covered by modern housing.

Kinson Cemetery fulfills an important role and covers sections once named Whitefield and nearby heathland. An ancient lane stills exits out onto Kinson Road opposite Brook Road.

A part of Captain King`s became the Kinson Baths which has now gone and the vacant land awaits other uses in the near future.

Redgate and Furzy ground by Kinson Road now have different names. Properties now front Kinson Road. Griffiths Gardens and Glenmeadows Drive cover Redgate Hill and Barn and close.

Fryer Close nestles tightly into a small corner of Redgate Hill by Stoney Close.



Areas of Cudnell and Millhams

 

Many changes took place when low-lying land around Millhams was raised by amenity tipping.

Original woodland in the lower section of our map survives almost intact to the present time.


Pick Purse to Gulliver`s Tavern

 

This map gives an indication of the many old field names from Pick Purse to Gulliver`s Tavern and then heading back along Wimborne Road to Cowleys at Bear Cross.  Christ the King  School and Church are built on a part of Pellands.


Old Bear Cross and West Howe


 

A map showing old field names back to the early 1800s.


From East Howe to Kinson

 

Field names are shown on this map which dates to c1840.


Turbary Common (West Howe) in the 18th Century




This map shows some of the original parcels of land close to the location of the present day Turbary Common in Bournemouth. Much of the land between Ringwood and Wallisdown Roads used to be known as Bankes Heath.





From Northbourne to Ensbury Park




This is a small portion of the Kinson Tithe Map dating to c1839. Isaac Gulliver once owned Ensbury Field, also more land towards the modern day Ensbury Park area. 965 was 2.5 acres of tithe-free heathland, also owned by him, which once fronted the track or lane which eventually became Howeth Road.
