Its looking up Ince Green Lane. The Manley pub is the one on the left. Took me some time to work out where it was.

Its Ince Green Lane,looking up towards higher Ince.The picture appears to have been taken just before Lower Ince Station,with the Manly pub is on the lefthand side

This is Ince Green Lane, Manley Street is the road on the left hand side, the building you can see on the left was the Manley hotel but now its called Incefield House a 24 hour emergency clinic, the walls of the bridge went many years ago, the railway line that passed underneath has also long gone and and the area is now grassed on both sides

This is looking up Ince Green Lane from the top of Manley St. The pub is the Manley Hotel.

This would still be classed as Lower Ince, with Higher Ince in the distance.

The sign you can seeon the left is the regulations for the GC railway line which run under the road. Lower ince station is on the left down Junction terrace which is still there. One of my old drivers lived down there Harry Marriot any one remember him, he was a real gentleman.

Aitch I remember a Paul Marriot who I think still lives on Junction Terrace. I worked with him many moons ago. He was a jcb driver.

I think Aitch, you will find junction terr. on the right, to the left is Manley st. I also knew Harry Marriot, from Springs Branch.

the area over the wall opposite the manley was next to the old clinic and we used to call it "the little jungle".
