Travelling from Whelley towards Aspull on Wigan Rd (B5238) it's on the left just after Higher Lane.

Thanks David. I can't believe it, as I used to live in St David's Crecent, never knew it was called Crawford's Wood. I now know where you mean. We used to call it going down the line.

Thanks Neil I have had a look at the photo you mentioned. I moved to St David's Crescent in 1956 when I was 9 and the houses were first built. There wasn't anything in front of our house then and we used to play in the farmer Jack Marsdens fields. We were chased off many a time.thanks again Kath.
