I lived on Merlin Way in the 50s and went to Hucklow Road school for a short while.  We then moved up to Shiregreen ( Oaks Fold Road ) and I went to Woolley Wood School. In 1966 we moved down south.

An aunty and uncle of mine lived on Tideswell Road for many years, their surname was James and they had two sons Michael and Alan.
