Lidget, or Lidge Gate, is near Soutergate village. The modern O.S. map does
not give it a name although there is a mark which might denote the presence of
a small building. The nineteenth-century O.S. (available online at
http://www.old-maps.co.uk/ ) names it.
The lane that runs west from Soutergate eventually peters out into a footpath
or bridleway heading towards the railway line. Just before it does so, you
will find Lidget on the right hand side.
