The following message was sent to us by Joyce Oliver. I don't know the answer but I wonder if anyone out there has any ideas about it?
Please let us know if you do ! Thank you.

Hi, I am looking at an old map of Hyde, showing brick field on Garden Street in Newton. It also shows, right next to it, something called Dolls 'ith hole.
Can you please tell me what this was and why such a strange name ?.
