Hi
           There used to be E W S tanks there during the war in front of the Sunday school. After the war they had prefabs where the tanks were. I used to go to the youth club they had in the same building as the Sunday school to play snooker and table tennis
                                                                                                                                                    herby

ITV crime serial 'Scott and Bailey' aired tonight featured The Angel pub on Old St and Ashton Canal, showing the old mill chimney, Margaret St

Just to add further info, the doorway in this photo is the fire exit for the premises on the first floor of the block. In my youth, it was a rather seedy nightclub called the 'Horseshoe Club' and was above the Humane Friendly Society. I expect both are long gone.
