My Memories Of The Red Lion Area

Roger... After reading your recollections of the Woodsend Road I hope you don't mind me adding to your list of memories. It fair to say before I start to write we do know one another and by now we both have a lot of grey hair, or maybe no hair. I cannot help but remember a time when the 23 bus stop was alongside the field of Dutton's farm and the bus shelter was a cast iron and glass structure built on treed island in the middle of the road, this island many years later became a small traffic roundabout. The worst thing those days was the fact the 23 bus did not have a heater and neither did it have doors that closed, come to think of it the old North Western number 3 and number 5 bus's running from ...Read full memory

The Red Lion

I lived about 150m from here from 1953 till 1968. This is 'The Red Lion' (the Red Lion pub is just out of shot at the left). Visible shops include Haslams newsagents, Traynors butchers, a greengrocer, grocer and (by this time?) a ladies hairdresser which had also been a decorators and a Granada Red Arrow TV rental shop. The terminus for the No. 23 bus route to Manchester Picadilly.

Barton Swing Bridge

Not in Flixton really - Davyhulme, I think. The bridge spans the Manchester Ship Canal, Eccles is on the other side of the bridge. The famous Barton Aqueduct carrying the Bridgewater Canal over the Ship Canal is obscured by the small building on the right.

Xmas Tree

There was a "Hames" the bakers, Boots, a green grocers, Jack Bamford's, the off licence (was it "Ashe and Nephew"?), Swanson's, a shoe shop and Warners a clothes shop (or the other way round!). The "Meadow" grocers, and Jacksons, a newsagent and toy shop, then the chippy on the end. There used to be a really big Christmas tree ...Read full memory

Flixton Road

This picture shows the Post Office - the nearest of the row of shops. Note the old-fashioned police telephone just outside the Post Office. The next shop is the barbers where I used to get the haircut! The son of this barber had a barber shop close to the junction of Moorside Road and Woodsend Road (other picture in this ...Read full memory
