The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland - 1868
"MOSS-SIDE, a hamlet in the parish of Lytham, hundred of Amounderness, county Lancaster, 2 miles N.E. of Lytham, and 6 S.W. of Kirkham. It is situated near the river Ribble's mouth. It is a station on the Lytham branch of the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway."
N.B. The gazetteer is incorrect, Moss Side has never been in the parish of Lytham, it was in Kirkham parish.
