Going along the path at the left hand side of the Red Ash, (this was the site of the old Norley Pits)you would come to Norley Quarry,which was still opperational and then City Road Orrell.The houses on the right would be Marsh Green.Not many in those days.
I've got my bearings now with this photo, the railway trackbed that the people are walking along went past the back of Red Ash to the brickworks in Walthew Lane, then carried on to the coal tipper at Crook.
