Edging closer, I used to live in Orrell Gardens, not far from Broxton Avenue. The road somehow looks narrower than I remember.

Thank you Mick, a nice clear photo.

Comment by Mick on 18th July 2015 at 07:25
Alan if you remember I did a video for you of your old street about 3 years ago Orrell Gardens it can be seen by copying this link

Hi Alan whenn did you leave Orrell Gardens I have lived there since 1983


Comment by kevan taylor on 18th July 2015 at 08:43
I can remember whizzing down the footpath on a trolley that consisted of a plank of wood attached to the front and rear halves of a roller skate back in 1964! Was I on the forerunner of a skateboard do you think? We lived further down in Coniston Avenue before coming here to Australia in mid '64. The road wasn't full of parked cars probably Alan, I seem to remember there being only two cars near where we lived


Comment by Ann on 18th July 2015 at 10:13
What's my husband's car doing there?? Only joking.


Comment by Yvonne Roby on 18th July 2015 at 10:57
I also lived further down in Coniston Ave from 1961-67 my first married home. Happy days


Comment by Jonno on 18th July 2015 at 17:10
You've hit the nail on the head Ann, as i've said before that COULD be a problem.


Comment by Julie on 18th July 2015 at 17:16
Greatly enjoy your many youtubes uploads Mick. Sorry, to all , for off the subject.


Comment by Alex on 18th July 2015 at 20:41
Is the M6 to the right, going North or South?


Comment by Neil Rigby on 18th July 2015 at 23:10
Alex, that's the M6 going north.


Comment by christine on 18th July 2015 at 23:54
used to live in broxton ,in the cul de sac .happy days


Comment by Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 19th July 2015 at 00:12
Mick, I remember your kind effort for me. Thank you for repeating the link, I lost the original.

Dave, I left in 1972 when I got married.

Alan


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th July 2015 at 06:25
Alex and Neil Rigby; the M6 is going North and South!


Comment by Neil Rigby on 19th July 2015 at 11:45
In terms of the view, the traffic on the M6 is either going north or coming south, but not both. Going implies away and coming implies towards. The M6 itself is static and doesn't. go anywhere.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th July 2015 at 14:22
Neil; there`s traffic on both carriageways.


Comment by Ronny on 19th July 2015 at 14:53
Cars on the pavements - naughty!


Comment by Neil Rigby on 19th July 2015 at 18:44
Of course Ernest, so in my view it is equally correct to say "the M6 is going north" (i.e. there is traffic on the M6 is going away from our viewpoint northwards) or "the M6 is coming south" (i.e. there is traffic on the M6 is coming towards our viewpoint southwards.)


Comment by Garry on 19th July 2015 at 20:28
Neil I know your right like most people on here do, it's ernest once again trying to be clever and awkward.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 19th July 2015 at 21:35
Garry, it's no more than a some verbal sparring, and a bit of fun.
