Was at Whitworth St. 1954-59 and wanted to mention my geography teacher, Jos Horrocks. In 1955, he took a group of us from London Rd. Station to Hayfield from where we walked up Kinder Downfall onto Kinder Plateau (with haversacks, stout shoes, and a packamac - remember them?). It was only 4 yrs after the establishment of the first national park in 1951 which was 70 yrs ago this weekend. The impression it made on me started a whole new life in the outdoors - climbing, pot holing, rambling, orienteering and canoeing. After 15 years as an international canoe slalomist, I became National Team Coach and an Olympic Coach.
From small beginnings. RIP Jos Horrocks. Fondly remembered.

Manchester Chat / Good Location for Starting Salary?

Hi Everyone,


I'm looking to move to Manchester as I have a job in the centre and my current commute is just over 60 mins (from Sandbach).


My salary is 17K (before tax) so I am trying to figure out if this is possible, or if it would be too much of a tight budget to work on. Obviously this restricts my monthly rent budget to around 500.


I am happy to house-share or live alone, I am 25 so whilst I don't want to be in student style digs, it would be nice to live somewhere with some sort of lively atmosphere.


I'm aware the city centre is way out of my price range, people have suggested Bury (Prestwich in particular) Eccles, Chorlton and Rusholme.


I guess what I'm asking is, is renting on 17K possible, and if so, which areas are best value for money and actually nice places to live. What would you recommend?


TIA! :)

Going from Chads to Woodwork at Waterloo Rd,I shortcut over crofts by Strangeways Wall,not knowing if they were bomb sites or just clearance.
Kicked up a very old penny.
Also worked for a year at garage further down Waterloo Rd,same side as school.[Monty's?] about 1951-2.
