Any idea where this was taken Marie?
it was taken in worsley mesnes .right to left PETER GREENALL.JOHN READY .JOHN DARBYSHIRE
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.)
Thanks Marie. Have you any more from this same area?
no sorry just the one Wigan Corporation men me were too busy to pose for photos dont they look it
