Another shot of the sentry point in May 2004

On the boundary between Rishton and Great Harwood, at Tottleworth Brook, sits the unmanned sentry point.

Not that it is much use, people are forever simply walking past it, and entering the town.

Passports which should be being examined to make sure no illegal immigrants enter Rishton from Great Harwood are not being used, and the colour of the town is gradually changing. People are starting to feel blue!

With council cut backs in recent years it is no longer possible to maintain the sentry point, and desertion is now commonplace in the area.
