Allotments on Warrington Road, Newtown
Photo: Jonathan Rigby

This is of the allotments that were behind houses on Warrington Road. The Liverpool, Bolton, Bury railway is on top of the embankment and Skew Bridge is to the right (not on photo !) I remember these allotments being built on, and a cash and carry place was built on them. The photo is from the mid 1950's
