Great pictures Townie. When Shard End was built it looked very impressive.
Lots of posts please and paint a very full picture.

There was a petrol garage on the corner of Hurst lane and Broomfield Rd. Does anyone remember the little sweet shop. It was at the side of the garage. Not sure if it only opened at school going home time.
