Woodley Village As It Was - a Memory of Woodley.
I was brought up in Woodley in the 1960's when Woodley was a tight knit community.
My parents had a shop on Hyde Road, "Kelsall's". It was a sweets and tobacconist shop and at the back of the shop there was Rowlands Farm, and over the railway bridge you was on the estate.
I have lost count of the times as kids that we run to that railway bridge when the old steam trains used to go under it, and got a face full of smoke in our faces.
In the winter times, when there was proper winters, we used to make slides down the long path over the bridge - such memories.
I used to go the little school just near the canal before transferring to the Werneth low school, and then I went to Highfield Secondary, before my parents sold the shop to Stockport Council to undergo what is now the Woodley precinct.
