This little footpath links Walmsley Avenue on the South Side estate to Walmsley Street.
The picture has changed slightly since it was taken in July 2001, as 4 new houses have been built and the road extended slightly.
The path goes past the former Rishton colliery site, the mound of earth to the left of the picture being the pit shaft capping.
The path finishes at the former weigh house for the pit, were the road resumes.
This is a footpath that was shown on the original plans for the South side estate as a link road to the High Street.
Residents have campaigned ever since for this road to be built, but to no avail.
