St Ambrose College (9)
View across the northern playing fields. In the 1950s, the College had not developed this area of the grounds and it was still given over to the growing of potatoes and root vegetables. Indeed, the boys of the school were sometimes dragooned into helping harvest the crops.

The land runs down to Broad Lane, an avenue of large detached properties, like the one in the photo, amongst which was the home of the Liberal peer, Lord Winstanley.
