One thing that strikes me when looking through these slides is that, although Middlewich, like every other town, has changed over the last forty years, many parts of it remain recognisable. Not so with this particular part of town. Here's a little teaser: Where is this, and what's there now? There's a bit of a clue in the position of the church tower. Perhaps Old Middlewichians who know the answer might like to step aside to see if relative newcomers might be able to work it out?
