Lost and forgotten streets of Salford ........... nu 56 standing on Greengate one year on

Now it has been over a year since I was last on Greengate, and the development on either side is all but finished.

All a lot different from when this was a building site and Greengate was closed off to traffic at the Chapel Street end.

And even more different from when the corner by the railway bridge had a number of small shops, which many will remember with affection.

I could go on, but I have written about the place in the past and no doubt there will be plenty of people who will chime in with their own memories, stories and pictures.*

So these two are all for today but with an option on more from the past tomorrow.

Location; Salford

Pictures; Greengate, 2017 and 2016 from the collection of Andrew Simpson


  1. I feel sorry for the pigeons, where are they all going to shelter now?

  2. Let's face it. Manchester is not pigeon friendly anymore.
