That’ll be me - long time browser but you’ve inspired me to register 😉
Original RS boot badge too - mine bent like a banana over the years, probably due to heat from the sun.

Whereabouts on A-U-L? That's my home town. :)

I must've been out on social duties :whistle:, but I myself am based in Littlemoss, just in between Droylsden and A-U-L. Really highlights the length us folk have to go to in order to escape T(sh)ameside!

I know Littlemoss - I was originally penned to go to Littlemoss High School back in '86 when I was leaving primary school, though ended up going to Stamford High School. Both have been demolished now from what I can gather?

I was in Crowhill, near where the current Curzon Ashton football club is. My parents still live there.

Littlemoss was only demolished fairly recently - it merged with Manor Rd High to become Droylsden Academy (which I attended) in 2009. Both sites were open concurrently for a few years, with the two early years attending Littlemoss until 2011 when the Littlemoss Site was demolished and we all moved into the new build on Manor Rd, Droylsden.

If I remember correctly, Stamford was also demolished but a new build was built on the same site, under the New Charter Academy banner (Academies everywhere!), and is still going to this day.

Ironically, they're now building yet another Academy + Sixth form on the site of the old Littlemoss School, which spells misery for my morning commute if nothing more considering I'm on it's doorstep. :rolleyes:

I must've walked past your parents many a time on the way to the pubs in Ashton on a Saturday. :)

My sister has just moved to littlemoss. Lives on the street where one of the site entrances is to the new academy is being built. Lumb lane I think. You can see it all going up out her back window.

She'll only be a stones throw away from myself then - either directly opposite me or round the corner. Hopefully the sound of me whizzing past isn't enough to put her off the greenery of Littlemoss. :LOL:

Used to know the lad who's family had the farm on the corner of Lumb Lane - that backs onto the old Littlemoss High School/now academy.

David Cook was his name - was i my class at school. One of my other classmates moved onto Woodleigh Drive too, which could be the same street you're mentioning?
