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.
