Scar Lane Golcar, taken from Rufford Road in the 1930's.

As the textile industry expanded so did the population, these houses being built in the
early 20th century and possibly occupied by the mill workers, Scar Lane overlooks the
Colne valley and the textile mills in the valley bottom and it is not surprising to find
many large victorian mansions situate here.
