Hattersley


Today's photograph is by Roger May. It first appeared on Geograph British Isles and is reproduced here with the photographer's permission.

Hattersley was built as an overspill estate for Manchester. Its poor reputation wasn't helped by it being home to Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. In the late 70s responsibility for the housing passed from Manchester to Tameside. The home of the Moors Murderers has been demolished. Many of the houses have been bought by sitting tenants whilst the council have passed the rest over to a Housing Association.

First Shipman, now the Moors Murderers. Is there something funny in the water in your area that we should know about? :)

Well, did you know that Royston Vazey lies just down the valley from this spot?
Are you Local? ;)
