  1. Michael Armstrong says:

    Hello, I’m writing a short story based in Prestwich that I’ve set in the early 1930’s. I’m interested in being factually accurate. Would somebody have got the tram or bus down Bury New Road into Manchester at this time? Also, do you have any aerial shots of the clough area from this time?

      trams were still running in 1932(o/s map 1932) down bury new and bury old rds. there was an aerial survey in 1923 which took in the clough i believe by mathers.we only have the view of st mary’ and the rectory.any other questions let us know
