I'm giving far too many clues, but this one is a little harder than usual. It was in the vicinity of Moor St Station.

Its probably wrong Phil, as it doesn't look wide enough on the map to be your picture, but is it Henn's Walk? There would have been a bottling palnt where the building on the left is, with a wholesale wine merchant at the other end facing Dale End.

You are too smart for this game, you should be banned. It is of course Henns Walk that ran from Moor St to Dale End and was quite close to the one time St Peters Church. As shown on this OS map.
