Entrance to Petre Crescent July 2001.

Petre Crescent is found at the Eastern end of Walmsley Avenue and is built on former fields in Rishton.

The road sweeps round down and along the canal side before turning back up again to join back onto Walmsley Avenue.

At the bottom of the South part of the Road is the farm track which leads along the canal banking. At one time they used to graze horses in the fields were the houses are now built.

Down this section of road are Hawthorn Avenue, which leads to the Golf Club, Oak Close, Pine Close, Popular Close and Maple Crescent.

Passing along the bottom of Petre Crescent, a 90 degree bend in the road at the junction with Meadowhead Drive, takes us back up to Walmsley Avenue, passing Sycamore Close on the way, and the site of the Former Rishton Colliery.

Petre Crescent heading up to Walmsley Avenue July 2001.

Traffic calming measure were built into the road toward the end of the 1990's after complaints about the amount of traffic, but this problem will not be resolved until more roads are created into the estate. The junction to Walmsley Street cannot be opened until 2010, when the coal mine has finished settling, and Meadowhead looks like it will never be opened. These are the only 2 viable routes off the estate.
