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.
