Did you know?

The name Daneshouse is probably a version of ‘dancer’s house’, which was a popular reference to a prosperous farmer’s home, located between what is now the site of Sainsbury’s and the canal. These were the people with time, leisure and cause to dance! The name is likely to have nothing to do with Danish people. Stoneyholme indicates that the area was a stony piece of land, slightly raised up from the badly drained land round about it. ‘Holme’ does indicate Scandanavian presence – it was the Viking word for island in the 9th and 10th centuries.
