Outside St. Anne's Church Hall. I don't know who the Rose Queen was. I think that's Philip Hodgkinson at the front. I'm the second boy holding the train.

John Lawton, the first Vicar of St Anne's, in whose time the new church in the background was built in 1953, left in 1956. If you knew who the Vicar was when the pic was taken, you could date it more precisely.
