Went out with a boy who lived in one of those hundreds of terraced houses and when they were being demolished they went to live in Worsley Mesnes in a beautiful brand new house. It was Christmas and birthdays all rolled into one. No more tin baths but a beautiful bathroom.

I can see wht looks like the roof of a new block of flats in the background so could be in the area of Morris Street but I would like to know the street.

I'm pretty sure, it's the same house as shown in picture item #35002 (https://www.wiganworld.co.uk/album/photo.php?opt=5&id=35002&gallery=Scholes&page=1)
That might help locating it, relating it to the Scholes village highrises.
