Re: Closure of Chorlton Web Discussion Forums

Be interesting to see who has the final post on the final thread. My money's on Annie, she always liked to have the last word. Or Louise.

Re: Closing down... opening up

NIce to see a bit of action on this board. Merry Christmas everyone~! Blimey. I've just noticed that this thread is more than 12 years old! Isn't it 5 years old?

Re: The gentrification of Beech Road

I'm not sure it's a different crowd from 10 years ago but I'd say it's definitely a different crowd from 20 years ago.

I don't really know what gentrification means though. If Chorlton is being subject to this, is it a good thing or a bad thing?

Re: Closing down... opening up

Chorlton Off Licence has closed (the one opposite Lloyds). Decent beers there, if a little on the pricey side. Word is it's going to be some sort of takeaway.

Re: Best route to Charlotte Street

I go to work in the city centre in the mornings, usually around peak rush hour. I find that the tram can be quicker both ways even with a good 10 minutes walk to the stop.
