looks like the houses on Swinley Road opposite the church building. The leading man has a look of George Sandiford who taught metal craft at Pemberton, though latterly I know he was a congregant at Orrell Post Methodist Church close to where he lived.

This is outside 135 Wigan Lane, corner of Springfield Street.

Cyril - George Sandiford is still active at Orrell Post Methodist church, or at least he was a few weeks ago, when I looked in at one of their monthly book sales.

Mick, Glad to hear he's still active, I haven't been past there for some time so don't know if they still have a Wayside Pulpit, George would put up the messages on there. There's not many churches have them nowadays - pity, here's an example.

People ignore God and then blame him for the chaos that results.
