Hulme

A Memory of Ardwick

I lived in Hulme from 1969 to 1974. I watched all 4 crescents go up. For the first year I remember people being really happy about living in the crescents, then very very soon after, people started to beg to get out. I remember running over to the shops through the crescents and being scared to death but knowing I had to get to the shops for my mum. At first Hulme was a nice place to live but very soon it became frightening. I lived at 16 Tissington Walk, I went to Cornbrook Primary. We thought we where posher living over the other side of Royce Road, from the crescents. I so remember those nasty decks going up very quick. Does anyone out there remember Tissington Walk, or Cornbrook Primary?
