Meadowhall GC, also known as Meadowhall & Wincobank

Wincobank Mid, also known as Wincobank & Meadowhall

It is called Blackburn Road? The old line is now a tarmac track which you can walk/cycle along to Meadowhall. It is the same one that passes Grange Lane (there is a sign on that picture). Grange lane is on the GC isn't it? ;-)
