Looks like something out of a Dickens film set. I cant believe that people lived in houses like this when I was born..

I have a book by Ernie Taberner called "A Lancashire Upbringing" which is about his childhood in Driving Lane.

There is a photo of Driving Lane, off Chapel Lane on WW, looking at the back of the property from the canal.
