Re: The gentrification of Beech Road

getting posher innit ? people who move here now must have a lot of cash to afford it. another thing is that i live near sandy lane and on a friday and saturday evening there are a lot of cars parked up there so i guess chorlton has become somewhere to go out of an evening even if you don't live here.

Re: The gentrification of Beech Road

Totally agree - I look at the Launderette and think 'Didsbury'. The Lead Station is/was a bit smart like that but it was the exception on that road whereas now it seems to be more of the norm. I love the vibe of the (relatively) new strip opposite the bus station. Reminds me of what it used to be li...

Re: THIS FORUM - Should it Continue?

I really don't look very often nowadays but nor do I look at the facebook page either - so that's just down to me not having as much time as I used to . Unfortunately it looks like the more recent posters are spammers: http://www.chorlton.co.uk/Talk/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1859 Whatever you decide t...

Re: Gorton is the new Chorlton.

It does have something we don't have here , and that is a thriving market. Even with a massive Tescos next to it , the market always seems to be busy - it's sort of the equivalent of the precinct but with a much wider range of shops. I also think the snobby people would prefer it as it hides all the...

Re: Best route to Charlotte Street

I know this is not what you were asking but... why on earth would you want to drive in to MCR in the morning ? Charlotte street is pretty close to a Bus and a Tram stop and either would surely be easier ?

Just curious

Re: Closing down... opening up

What''s the story with Beech Road''s Moose becoming Elk ?? Their WiFi password is "RIPMoose" lol !! Moose (based in Hale) did a good refit of Beggars Bush - I guess the financial model didn't work. Very surprising for the location, perhaps they just spent tooinch? ? Moose == Elk I heard t...

Re: Canal tow paths

I hope they make a good job of this. The Bridgewater towpath has potential to be a cracking cycle route all the way from Altrincham to the city centre. In the daytime, it's ok. At night it's unlit and very narrow in places. Remember that a woman on a bike drowned at Old Trafford a few years ago: it...

I was really hacked off when it turned out that the Metrolink extension wasn't going to have a cycle path so this would be great. In the Su...

Re: Closing down... opening up

Any word on café Crema? There have been people going in and out a lot this week, and I heard that the pizzeria is still going ahead with a lateish licence. Lots of rubbly skippy building activity at the Gray's Larder premises. I don't actually sit with my binoculars trained on this row of businesse...
