Oooops sorry Bob.

Very careless of me to spell it wrongly - no offence intended.
I mis-copied from the image.
Not an area I know so just typed it quickly & did not realise the mistake.

NOW please spread the news on Haslington as it may help others.....

Which 'trick' surname did you try & end up in Haslington ??

TO ALL MEMBERS - please keep yelling about these hidden gems - we all want
to know more so we can grab the bits that will help us or our friends.

Sunny Birmingham (yes the real sun!!)

Can you tell me how you managed to get into the Haslington images?
I've been waiting for these for years.

Please can we get the spelling of Dukinfield correct.

There's no 'C' in Dukinfield. The tide went out years ago :o)
