Is that the old railway embankmentin the background? Whereabouts in Worsley Mesnes?

Marie - was it taken on the rec' behind St Paul's vicarage do you know. It looks very much like it to me?

it was between ST PAULS and Worsley Mesnes drive with the railway embankment in the background0

Yes, it looks like the embankment on the Pemberton Loop Line. The new Link Road from the A49 (near Goose Green Labour Club) to Westwood and Chapel Lane will follow the same route as the old railway, going over Poolstock Lane near the Tippings Arms (now being refurbished.)

Hi Marie, Are you sure that the man in the middle is John Ready because it looks very much like my late father in law Cyril Baxter, he also worked for the Metro
