Hi Janice, judging by the pavement and the fact there is no hedge bordering the field a likely place is Billinge Road, pointing towards Downall Green, between Birch Grove and the first bend going up towards Simms Lane End. This field always had corn growing in the 50's and 60's. I think it's now a playing field with a building.

Hi Janice, had missed this one! Now get the reference to long distance lorry driver!
