Haslingden County Secondary Modern School Annual Cross Country
As I remember the Cross Country event always started up on Poplar Street then crossing the road at the top and then after a while went up left by the side of the old "Toll Bar" now showing in a bad state of repair (and opposite the farm which at one time was known as a "Mink Farm", proceed up the incline to the top and then go out the track which leads by the side of the large TV mast, and just past there you came to a farm which those days had the lovely Mr and Mrs Whipp who so kindly provided the runners with light refreshment. You then proceeded down past their farm and ran over the disused quarry area and back down onto the back lane (Haslingden Old Road?) then you crossed over by Fred's farm and down the footpath and on to Hillside Road.
