barry cannot understand your comment this track has now been filled in although the top half of the wall still remains the roof on the left belongs to the general stores which used to be lyons in the 1940s then butchers and now the present owner tothe right of this were the allotments and the football [and sometimes school sports}ground i think you are getting mixed up with the bridge lower down

This is a cable railway ( or funicular). the fittings between the tracks are the cable guides or rollers. These usulayy have a passing place, with a short stretch of twin track, to allow operation with two wagons. Any visible sign of such a passing place?

i have not visited this site for a while so i amm a bit late with an answer for susan so here goes where the medical centre is and all the land beyond down to the skeltons and across to the shaftesbury football fields were alottments on the left hand side of the ginnel behind the mini market were also alottments but only a small part of it because next to it stretching down to the skeltons was the y.m.i fottball ground belonging to east end park club in the 1960s a clinic for children with disabilities was built on the alottment site hope this helps ps the football were also used for school sports days

Running the full length of one side, of the LUYMI sports ground, was a wooden shed. This housed a rope works. Kids used to climb onto the shed roof and run along it, when bored with the football etc. On the opposite side of the road, from this photo, in 1947, there was a fish and chip shop. The owner had at least one finger missing. We used to say he'd chopped them off with the chips and fried them.
