Sutton Then and Now Part 2
Robin Longbottom has completed part two of his excellent "Sutton Then and Now" series - it's available for download in the history section.

Another very interesting article, hard to believe that the Low Fold area has changed so much in such a short time. Wonder if JW Hartley ever took photos of any of the other properties prior to demolition?

Really enjoyed Then and Now part 2 but surprised you didn't recognise me as the 'Little girl' on Elm Road. We had a many great adventures on the lanes and ginnels of Low Fold. Your time and effort is really appreciated.

Hi Yvonne. My wife thought it was you and it would have been a fair guess anyway as your grandad took the snap, you are obviously on your way home. Good fun in those days - football, tin can rallyo and the occasional running battle with kids from other parts of the village, all took place in the then car free streets of Low Fold. Now kids can't play in the streets for parked cars and any green space has a sign up saying "No Ball Games" - how times have changed.

Fascinating old pictures....we are in one of the cottages on Elm Road/Gibraltar, and though we often hear about the reputed 1633 date stone, I am afraid we have found no trace of one!

Does anyone know if the garage sited at 10 Elm road in 1983 served petrol or stored oil .Has any one any pictures from ground level? Was it a used car sales or did it repair vehicles. I am very interested in the history particularly No.8 which has the remnants of a beam and winding mechanism. Any information would be appreciated
