Middleton Primary School and Secondary Modern School, aerial view (Middleton) (68 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of Middleton, centred on a square occupied by two schools. Middleton Primary is at the top while the school at the bottom was probably at the time (1960s?) Middleton County Secondary Modern, which was segregated into boys on the left and girls on the right. This school was later to become John Blenkinsop Middle. Playing fields in between were presumably shared by the schools. At the top of the square is Middleton Park Avenue, to the left Acre Road, right Throstle Lane and bottom Sissons Terrace. Below are houses on Sissons Crescent, crossed by Sissons View. More Sissons are on the left of the picture and Throstles on the right.
