Can you identify this Shop?

As not everyone here on facebook, wondered if this location could be solved. Looks a little like one of the corner shops onto Skipton Road, or is
the pavement too narrow?

Oddly also on facebook is this ITN Potato Shortage report, which is entitled by Gettyimages as Burnley shops, but there is a similar left hand shop frontage vertical part way through - though on a steeper hill. Strangely I was round at Richard Wellock's warehouse unit this afternoon - among other deliveries I was doing around Ouzedale and nearby areas.

Never seen it before, could be anywhere. I note the complete bunch of bananas over the door, straight off the ship!

The opening image looks like the shop at the corner of Knotts Lane and Burnley Rd Colne. See what you think.

As commented on the facebook site that the picture came from, the shop looks to be of random stone construction not blocks. It is on a slight incline and has a double step from the pavement and into the shop.

I also think it is on Knotts Lane just before it joins Burnley Road, actually on the corner of Knotts Lane and Mary St. I lived just around the corner from here from aged 4 until 10. It was a long time ago so I'm not 100% certain.
