|||Belle Isle Estate, plan (Belle Isle) (1 comment)
Plan showing new roads between Middleton Colliery and Belle Isle Estate. Running across the top of the image is Windmill Road with Winrose Drive above it leading to Belle Isle circus right at the top of the image. From Belle Isle Circus almost to the bottom of the image runs Belle Isle Road. Town Street branches off diagonally towards the bottom from Belle Isle Road and Nesfield View is right from this junction. Above Nesfield View are houses built on the incomplete 'Brooms' estate and below it are homes on the partially built Nesfield Estate. Middleton Colliery is marked on the left where Middleton Park is now located. Houses on the Lanshaw estate curve round at the bottom of the image. Just below Windmill Road the footprint of Windmill Primary School is visible but St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church, on a site below the school playing fields, or the houses on the Petersfield Avenue estate are not yet built. Running up the centre, from Town Street, is Aberfield Drive joining Winrose Approach. The road to the left of Aberfield Drive is Newhall Road. Next to Newhall Road the Manor Farm site has still not been built on.

Middleton Railway is the oldest commercial railway in the world. In the background of the image, centre, is Windmill Primary School (formerly Belle Isle Primary School)in Windmill Road. The traveller encampment is situated in the vicinity of Windrose Drive which is between the school and the Middleton Railway terminus.
