Went back to Mcr as part of my 'visit the relatives' trip from New Zealand. It's been about 30 years since I last visited Wyth.

I sadly see there's NO TRACE of the school whatsoever. I see Hollyhedge shops have changed a huge amount, tram lines and even the roundabout has gone. Somehow though, visiting the old council house in the depths of Wythenshawe, that essential "sh*ttiness" quality remains somehow in full measure, at least to my eyes.

Went to centre of Mcr as well - I see the free trade Hall is now a Radisson hotel, and the whole area has changed a huge amount too.

great and sad at the same time, but that's life...
