Looking out from Salford nu 1 .................. and an apology

Now there is nothing more embarrassing than discovering you have got a story so wrong. 

But it happens even though on this one I should have known better.  

The story featured the Imperial War Museum North, and carried the caption “In celebration of the new Salford ......... nu1 the Imperial War Museum North.”

And quick as a flash both George and Bill pointed out that actually “the Imperial War Museum is in Stretford, Trafford, on Trafford Wharf, you have to cross the Ship Canal from Salford to get to it. We have little enough in Stretford to boast about as it is and would like our boundaries left as they are. Not in Salford, in Stretford.”

This is not the first time I have muddied the boundaries and for that I fully apologise and in future will look at the map rather than make lazy assumptions.

But underlying the mistake and the corrections is the positive one that people do go to the trouble of pointing out where I went wrong.

So the old story has been pulled which is quite correct and this one has been substituted.............. should really have passed O level Geography.

Location Salford looking out to Trafford Wharf.
