On the left side Nos 14-26 of Finch Close (named after the Finch family who owned the Village) were built in the 1970s to provide housing for firemen based at Broughton Fire Station just up the path ahead. Each house was fitted with an alarm bell activated directly from the Station when a 'shout' or emergency call came in. Today they are all privately owned.
It is possible to continue along the redway path ahead and then turn left on meeting the road (Noon Layer Drive).
Otherwise make a left turn here along the public footpath behind Finch Close, which brings you out onto Noon Layer Drive at point 18.
