A T shaped Cul de sac, running left and right and consisting of red brick semi detached houses.

The street backs onto the canal, and then stops at open fields behind Bridge Street.

Alan Critchlow Way in July 2001.

Built on the former Wellington Mill site, the street is situated at the end of Spring Street, at its junction with Bridge Street and the Goosebutts footpath.

The Street follows the canal round the back of Bridge Street, and stops at the end of Norden High School.

The site was named after Alan Critchlow, who was a councillor for Rishton sitting on the Borough of Hyndburn council.

The estate was completed in 1999.

The estate was built by Evesbrook Housing Association for the purpose of renting the properties. All of these houses are rented by this company.

A NEW housing scheme, named in memory of a former councillor, was officially opened at a cost of nearly 2 million on the 21st April 1998. The late Councillor, Allan Critchlow, a former mayor of Hyndburn and long standing Rishton councillor, was honoured by the Eaves Brook Housing Association.

Allan Critchlow Way, was opened by the current Hyndburn mayor, Councillor Maurice Cowell who was pictured presenting a ceremonial key to new tenant Mrs Sheila Calvert. The development, with 35 family homes and a special needs home for the National Autistic Society, is built on the site of the former Unity Mill next to the Leeds Liverpool Canal. It had cost 1.9 million and weekly rents were set at 58.87 for a three-bedroom house and 54.15 for a two-bedroom. All the houses were let with half the tenants taken from the council's waiting list.
