Hi,

 

I'm interested in buying a house and have seen one in Shiregreen and one in Page Hall.

 

Which area is nicer to live in? Which would you recommend?

 

My mum would be living there too so needs to be quiet and peaceful.

 

Thanks

No brainer,  Shiregreen.

Definitely  NOT  Page Hall.      Avoid it like the plague.

 

Where abouts in Shiregreen ?   Like most areas, some parts are quieter and nicer.

there was a time that this question would have set the forum alight.

now it just highlights the barren land that the forum has unfortunately now become.

 

PS

I'd go with Shiregreen but depends very much where.

Parts of it are no better than Page Hall.

Personally I find the absence of dog whistle racist posts on SF refreshing.

 

All it used to do was end up with threads being closed or removed.

Don't know anyone currently from Page Hall but know loads at Shiregreen - those people alone would be an encouragement to buy at Shiregreen.

Ha!  Ha!  Ha!     I definitely know it.

I used to live on  Oaks Fold Road  but that was over 50 years ago.

Don't know what it's like now though.

Hi englishgirl2, if you Google 'Bryan Woodriff books' there are three  separate books published in the period 2001 to 2006 which deal with the Shiregreen and surrounding areas. E bay should be worth checking if you are interested.  Sorry but my memories of both areas are 20th century so of no help to you, nevertheless "Good Hunting"!
