    I have posted in the Lancashire forum as well because I live about 12 miles from Manchester (Heywood), but I was born and bred in Manchester. :)

    Hello againPoppet

    I live in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire, but was also born and bred in Manchester (Hulme). I love going on the Manchester Libraries Website, and looking at photos of all the old streets that I remember. If you haven't seen it its [link=http://www.images.manchester.gov.uk/]http://www.images.manchester.gov.uk/[/link]

    Take care

    Ah, I believe that's not too far away from me.:) Saying that I have absolutely no sense of direction or distance it's just that I've heard of it and know it's somewhere around here!!!! [sm=scratchchin.gif]

    Hi Aqua blue
    I lived in Collyhurst until I was 12 then we moved to Heywood - out to the country!;)

    Hi Kath
    Fancy that, you lived in Heywood. I moved here when I was 12 onto Darnhill, then got married and moved to Rochdale, then moved back to Heywood in 1978. I live in Hopwood now, do you know it? Whereabouts did you live? If you visit Heywood again you'll have to let me know and you can come round for coffee. :)

    Wow! Ive never been in the regional area before - its interesting to see names of places i know so well!

    I live in chorlton just now, but lived in bury for 4 years before that and Ramsbottom before that, which i loved... (prior to that was in native scotland).

    Must say i love living in Chorlton - its a great place!

    Feels like a smaller world in here now!

    even though...um....its been almost a year since anyone posted in here...

    oh well

    :D

    Hi Everyone,
    just found this thread (topic?)... I was born in Harpurhey, grew up in Newton Heath and Failsworth, spent a bit of time in Hulme, Oldham, Levenshulme, Gorton, Fallowfield, and Openshaw before moving to my current home in Swinton. Nice to hear some of the places I know mentioned!!!
