Chris lived in Netherton Grange until a few years ago. I believe he then moved into a retirement home close by, situated on Ormskirk Road between the canal and the British Legion. I heard he passed away not long after moving to the home.

The 'celebs' names you mention; Cathy Kirby and Dusty Springfield, both great singers in their day, sadly no longer with us.

I'm guessing that the shops in the precinct must have been accessible before the frontage came down then?
Can anyone tell me the name of that little street on the left please?
