I assumed it would just be where the road is now. Is it the park as well?

It would help if they'd explain where meadowcroft is- can only assume its one of the big houses near what was the driving range?

Some dwellings have been built on the old club house area, so maybe it's near there?

Anyway, just been out with the hounds and witnessed a bright rainbow which seemed to emerge from close to your place. That will have put up neighbouring rents! 😀

I had a look at house prices when I was back, I was very jealous about the prices. For what we're paying in rent I could be living in a 5 bed in Bromley Cross that looks like something from Dallas (and just as grim to be fair) or a decent place in Smithills - but over £1,200 is few and far between - seems like its lots of 1/2bed smaller properties. Buying something sizable for a family is do-able without needing a million, which is what the normal family houses round here go for, unless you want drawbacks such as no garden or no parking etc

I was stood outside a place for rent on prospect view just before Christmas. Does that no count as the exclusive belt?

Half way up Hardy Mill. The row of white terraced houses running perpendicular to the road.

Faux-stone 3 floor jobs near the school?

Now then, the place I was stood outside was opposite the school. I always believed that was prospect view. Was also shown to be the location of someone I wanted to visit on Google.

Yet strangely, when you put a search of prospect view, bolton into Google maps it can't find anything!

It was fuel, manual car wash (coin-op high-pressure lance with a couple of minutes of shampoo) and a garage/MOT station. Peter Hall, the scrap man was the MOT mechanic. They did car sales on the then disused forecourt then sold up and moved the sales business to Bury New Rd area.

Gradwells was very similar; fuel, MOT, drive through car wash (brush type) The car wash became Nigel Liston’s first spray booth.

did they have fuel til the death?

i only remember car sales and car wash

think i used to use that car wash when i was in ainsworth

No. Fuel finished, can’t recall dates but the tanks were filled with concrete, pumps removed and the whole forecourt ended up as a car lot.
