Many thanks to all who have replied to this thread, and for the information and references provided. I am confident now that the observatory shown on the maps that Roy provided the link for, was indeed the Greg observatory at Quarry Bank Mill – but what was in it and what happened to it I don’t as yet know. I shall keep digging and see what I can find on this specific observatory.I have found a reference book,part of which is previewed online, and which looks like it might have possibilities in this search, (although I need to look through what is online to determine this):http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=o-08AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA34&lpg=PA34&dq=Escowbeck&source=bl&ots=QdAUICbfwT&sig=TrN4Iuz5OajJQL_ZXc10LOziBr4&hl=en&ei=i4mCS97JKsKRjAf8pYWuCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=Escowbeck&f=falseAgain, many thanks to all for their assistance and contributions so far.
