I always thought it was the canal bridge/ con club but whichever way you look at it I was brought up as a bottom ender.

Wikipedia has

Clayton-le-Moors is said to be a town of halves. Residents were 'top-ender' or 'bottom-ender', depending on which side of the Load O'Mischief pub, now demolished to make way for the M65 motorway. The two had firm opinions about each other and rarely mixed There was, however, an annual football match between each at the running track at Wilson's Playing Fields.

The reference given is

http://www.visitlancashire.com/site/...e-moors-p96170

but I can find no mention of the subject there. Mind you that site also has a picture of the Market Hall which is labelled as the Town Hal lso I don't know how reliable it is.

I have heard that reference before , but I believe its wrong, I used to be a bottom ender some 15 years ago, and then I moved and was refered to as a topender, and I am this side of what used to be the Load.

I still go down to the area refered to as a bottom end, but only to chase parked cars.

Re: Today in pictures

I have lived in Clayton since 1966......top end......Henry Street at first then down by the canal.
I always thought that the top end ended at the Albion/Con club...but am happy to be corrected...after all, I am only a jumped up foreigner from Accrington(that is what someone once called me many years ago).

Re: Today in pictures

Todays effort Part 1.
1. Leaving Clayton and on way to Church.
2. Chillaxing on Riley's Swing Bridge.
3. A big herd of gooses.
4. Nearly at Church Kirk.
5. Over Church Kirk Bridge and away to Rishton.
6. Looking out toward The Nab.
7. Looking back at St. James Church, and the bridge.
8. Where the Leeds/Liverpool canal crosses the M65, whilst I was there they had discovered a leak under the bridge on the motorway, apparently it had dropped off a greengrocers wagon
9. I can see my house from here.
10. High Street Rishton.
