If I remember correctly. This is the street where the Regal Cinema was situated. Remember it being built in 1939,and I saw many, many films there,during the 40s and early 50s. The same family,Atherton's, owned the Scholes Cinema

Carol. The reason I remember Windleshaw Street. This is the Street where we used to queue up to go into the front of the cinema. It was cheaper than the back stalls.
