Comments: This popped up whilst trying to google a memory of a girl who was badly burned in the face whilst using matches to look into the petrol tank of a car abandoned in the car park of that big pub (The Peel Hall???) next to Peel Hall shops, on Peel Hall road (C.1973). Anyway, I was a boy scout at the church further along the same road (on the right going towards Simons Way), that's how I remember when I left Wythenshaw for sunny Timperley at the age of 12 (1975).

Comments: I left Wythenshawe then surname Dillon to marry Anthony WEBB-NAYLOR we split up in 1978 AND WAS THEN DIVORCED IN 1981. Their were 2 sons and one daughter who are now near to 40 years of age and 4 grandchildren who live far away but we meet now and then. I never found another partner or married but he did in 1981. We lost touch until my Sons married and that is the only contact that we have ever had since the break-up. I have stood on my own two feet and I am now so independant that it has become boring. So soon I will join a friendship club and that should solve the problem; I have been lucky with jobs over the years until I retired in 2006 and will now be looking out for a volunteering or charity work unpaid to pass the time and help others along the way. I came back again here in 2001 and it would be good to hear from anyone who remembers me you may e-mail me at paulinenaylor1@sky.com

Comments: Please note my correct email address. Left Wythenshawe in 1963 and went back for a `memory lane' visit last week (14/9/07) and was appalled by how run down the place was, particulally the Benchill area where I grew up. A neighbour next door to where I lived in Solway Rd said she would not dare to walk in the area after dark. But, some of the houses were well kept and the visit, especially Wythenshawe Park which hadn't changed much, brought back many fond memories.

Comments: I remember, the mixer the big hill, the little woods, the big woods,the green hut, Jackson's farm (very hard pears!), Cokkies pond, fishing where the Civic is,jumping the stream near where Simonsway is, Johnsons sweet shop, bogey races, noisy metal wheeled skates, football on the fields near Saintsbridge,tennis in the road using the rectangular marks as court lines,cricket using the lamp-post as the wickets - got nicked and fined for this once, cycling to Maine Road and paying 3d to leave my bike in someone's yard. Stilts made from wood nicked from the houses being built on "The New Road" Greenwood Road, and stacks more as I write. Have to lie down now and recover from an overdose of nostalgia.

Comments: We moved to Wythenshawe in 1956, I had a good time growing up with local lads, John Mason, Phil Conway,Phil Weir,Steve Gibbons and many more, we spent a lot of hours kicking a football around and sometimes each other, the summers were spent at Cassie Mills swimming in the bolin or trying to sneak into the outdoor pool without paying. I left Oldwood in 1967 with numerous bruises from Slogger Smith. I worked at the Golden Garter for a while before joining P&O and travelling around the World for several years before settling in Sydney with my wife, we have 3 kids. Still a mad Red, I'd like to hear from anyone who remembers our family

Comments: Great site - lovely to read everyone's memories. Left Wythenshawe in 1984 with my mum and dad (Eva and Peter Stanton). Hardly ever go back to Wythenshawe as no longer have any family there, but have been back to see if the place is still standing! So many things have changed, shops, schools knocked down. With new housing developments replacing them. I had an auntie who lived in Barncroft Gardens for many years. Her name was Irene Walker who had 1 daughter Tracy and 2 sons Sean (Judd) and Niel. Families, people I can remember from Haveley Road (Anvil pub end) were Diane, Betty, Alan, Colin, Debroah Pratt. Donna Holland, Mcevoy's, June, Jim, Matthew, Jamie, Carl, Mark Bates, Dunbar's, Bernadette and Jackie Wagstaffe, Jason Beggs and family (lived next door to us)Margaret, Terry, Samantha and Debroah Bell from Fancroft Road and Meryl Winters and family from Rushey Road. I can remember many more faces but not their names! Have many memories of living in Benchill which were all great and would loved to hear from you if rememember me! Take care.

Comments: Hi, Just found this site it is fascinating I was only in Wythenshaw for about four years 1950-1954 but I do remember how happy I was that we had this posh upstairs flat with a bathroom. I remember all the new shops and riding my bike there for sweets, I thought it was heaven after coming from a two up and two down, sharing with 5 other relatives. I have in the past tried to find out if anybody has any class and school photo's for the above time period for Baguley Hall but without any success. My parents died 1957 and 1959 and my father destroyed all photos that he had of me and my mother, why I will never know. Best wishes June

Comments: I went to Haveley Hey Primary School from 1965 until we left to live Germany in 1970. I can only remember a few names, Sean Dolen, who lived in one of the houses opposite the schoolgates, I don't remember the name of the road. We used to be "sweethearts". I also remember a Philipp, but have forgotten his surname. He was in my class, too. Also a Julie Mansfield. My teacher was Mrs Johnson. If you are or know any of these people, please contact me.
