It's quite a main road as you can see the tram tracks on the photo.

No mention of it in Bennetts books. I wonder what the routes of the trams were, only main roads I know, but which ones? There must be a map somewhere----a question for Roger.

It's on a slope, but so is nearly everywhere in Burnley. My bet is Todmorden Rd with the style of houses, and Outwood Rd being up there. Can you see a road sign on the main road side, above the door on the corner? The road to the right looks unmade. Looks like the iron railngs are still there so that dates the pic a bit. Just looking for clues.

It is Todmorden Road, I have had a look on my old Burnley street directory.
