As a boy (I was born in 1945) I can recall walking from Upholland Railway Station across to Lawns Farm / Avenue past the 'pepper pots'.
I don't know if they still exist, but they were ventilation shafts over the railway tunnel, when a steam train went through the tunnel the smoke from the steam engine used to 'spurt' out of the ventilation shafts like a pepper shaker. Happy memories ....
