It looks like Liverpool Road to me, with the school would over to the left... and Church Street over to the right.

Does look like Liverpool Rd. I would place the houses to the left of salters chemist opposite the new housing offices.

Do you mean between the chemist and the old doctors...yeah I think you are probably right

the houses are on Liverpool Rd, practically facing Green St (slightly to left) and before the chemists and doctors.The chemists used to be a hairdressers in the 1950's.
