This looks like they could be walking past the Thomas Linacre centre on Parsons Walk. The gable end of the house looks very similar to the one that is still there plus it looks like Wigan cricket club field in the background but I don't recognise the building there unless its the old club pavillion.

Yes I think you're right and the building was the old cricket pavilion. It was a Whit Friday walk to the Market Square so the church we were walking for was probably the Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Springfield Road.

Ron, if I remember correctly it was Malcolm Birkett. That's me next to him.

Comments by RON HUNT, 3rd June 2019  
Malcolm Birkitt that's it. There are some photos of him under the Thomas Linacre School topic, in the school band.
David you don't happen to have any Wigan Speedway programmes do you?

Comments by David Brown, 4th June 2019  
No, I'm sorry Ron.
