This page is a bare-bones entry for a specific location marked on an old map. More detailed information may eventually be added...


  • location: off Green House Hill, Shelley Lane End
  • status: partially exists
  • category: path or country lane

Named as Boggard Lane leading west off Green House Hill, it joined a footpath running northwards from Shelley to Pilling Top and Standing Hirst. The Boggard Lane section had disappeared by the 1890s map.

The name suggests that locals believed the area was the haunt of a boggard, which was an often malevolent or mischievous supernatural spirit.
