Uttoxeter? No sign of a racecourse on this picture though. I would have said Exmouth but that is south of Exeter.

Is that Frank Spencer to the left of the two tone Humber?

Lazarus The 2nd Are you guessing at Mexborough because of the limited number of towns with an X? It's only 10 miles from me, but it was extensively redeveloped in the '60s, so if it is, I can't recognise any of it the picture elements compared to now. But the general atmosphere of the picture feels right for a '50s northern pit/market town.

If it is, the camera must be facing East, as the whole town is at the foot of a hill rising North.

Totally different to today, but it should be Main Street not High Street.

I'll get over their to find the location on Monday and cadge a cuppa at a friends:)

I've just checked the A/Z, there is a short 100m section named High St, but I think all of that area no longer exists as in the picture.
