The band you see here are walking from St. James' Church to the Mission (Worsley Mesnes Community Centre).
The houses are still there but don't look quite the same because they were renovated several years ago and Kays Hardware is now the end house of that row.
At the other end of the row, near the tall green lamp post is the turning in to Worsley Mesnes Club and the Health Centre.
Beyond that, on the extreme left of the picture, you can see the Tippings Bridge - now just a grassy slope on each side of the road.

Hello Kathleen, your house of many years ago is behind the Banner. I love these old photos of Worsley Mesnes, and Poolstock too, since I went to Poolstock C of E School in the 40's and early 50's.

Hi Teresa Henry, I was a paper boy back in 1983 at the very same paper shop, before your relatives took it over. I remember they bought if of Florence Hilda Miller, usually known as Hilda . Do you have any idea what happened to her? I remember she had a house up the side of the Bold Horel, Clifton St I believe.
