Living in Salford, Nr Manchester there’s loads of housing, which makes it a vibrant and lively community. There are Squares, in the sense of traditional gardens with houses around it, but you’re more likely to lead into a path onto a main road.
They spread out like trees, with little side streets and cul-de-sacs. The houses opposite my bedroom/office weren’t even there when we first moved into the house we’re living in. It was affectionately known as “The croft” – an overgrown waste site which housed the occasional wildflowers and with them butterflies and wild animals
So what’s on my corner – a redeveloped docks, and a dual carriageway and just up the pavement – a patch of green known as the local park, there’s two areas, Ordsall and Monmouth – but those who use it know it as Ordsall Park
