Argleton, Lancashire: the town that doesn’t exist
Maybe it's like Brigadoon, and only comes back once a century?Posted by John Paradox in Tucson, AZ on Tue Nov 03, 2009 at 07:24 PM
I know of several towns that no longer exist except as a farmhouse or convenience store or former church at a rural crossroads, and as a reference on a map. The business' listed as being in the town, however, I have no explanation for except perhaps as an online prank, someone creating nonexistent companies in online business directories in a no-longer existent town.Posted by Canadarm in Toronto on Tue Nov 03, 2009 at 08:36 PM
It could be one of the many "traps" used by different map makers to find other companies which copy their maps with out permission. See it all the time.Posted by Robert in Rolla - USGS on Wed Nov 04, 2009 at 03:26 PM
