Churchill Avenue in July 2001.

Churchill Avenue is were the War Memorial can be found.

The memorial stands at the head of the Avenue at its junction with Blackburn Road. Thornhill Avenue runs off here to the left, and Woodside Avenue to the right.

The street carries on, and runs over the railway bridge, and continues to the farm.

The last house on the street is sat next to the railway embankment, and overlooks the railway from its gardens.

Plans were first submitted for this road in 1925, and were at first turned down. It wasn't until 1926 that building work finally started on the road.
