That must be later then 1981 as the road behind central park going up towards wigan lane wasn't built by then.

My father grew up in Vaughan St off Greenough St in the early 1900's when Scholes had character, real character. It's very nice now but it has obviously lost something. However we must move on...ahhhhh

What a lot of changes this part of Scholes has seen between this photo and the next one from 1972, and much more traffic

Central Park Way is now in operation, and that started in 1987. All the maisonette flats, in Scholes, a single block in Whelley, Dumbarton Green, Beech Hill and Worsley Mesnes, have all gone. Sullivan Way is on the right named after famous rugby player Jimmy Sullivan in 1979.
