    I am trying to locate Stonycroft which was an address in Whitefield at the turn of the 20th century.

    Can you help at all ?

    Do you have any information about the Brooklands area on Bury Old Road, next to the Woodthorpe Hotel. It is land which has never been built on, which seems strange. Someone once told me it was some sort of Religious area.
