Looking for lost pictures of Chorlton and memories of Cardiff Road

Longford Road,, and that lost Cardiff Road, 2015
Now as pictures go it is not the most promising of images, but it offers a story.

That said if you want to know about the lost road which once stood beyond the gates you will have to follow the link.*

Instead I want  to ask for photographs of Longford Road including the field currently owned by the MMU.

And before any resident worries that this is part of a development bid rest assured it is just the start I hope of a series of stories about this end of Chorlton, and in particular the brick works which has featured on the blog and which still stirs the memory of those now in their 60s. who once played amongst the old kiln and ran at the first sight of  "Duffy."
