The Heys


Looking down Mossley Road towards Ashton at the junction with Herries Street.
New houses stand on the site of the old Heys Primary School (originally Mossley Road School) which in turn was partly on the site of the Heys Colliery.

  2. Yes it has changed enormously. The three storey apartments on the corner stand in what was once the top of corner of Mossley Road School yard.
    There is a new school building further down on what was the playing field, it fronts onto Whiteacre Road. It is very much smaller than the original school building.

  3. The houses with the very long front gardens are still there, opposite the flats and houses in Martin's photo. Just along from there was the old bus garage.

  4. Spinners ,Mossley road is much the same as you remember it except for these houses and flats built where the old Mossley rd school was. Further up near Rosehill rd there are more flats built where the Oddwhim pub used to be .
