Trafford Park Village, Manchester 1984

In 1984 I noticed in the local paper that part of the old residential area of Trafford Park was going to be demolished in the next week, I decided to visit the area to take photographs of what I thought would be unoccupied, derelict buildings, however as I walked round the area I was surprised to find the occasional house still occupied, I spotted the odd child as I wondered round.  Word must have spread because within minutes I was besieged by children all wanting their photos taken and to know if theirs was going to be in the paper.

One short length of one of the streets still stands, the rest is now light industrial and office space.

It is my intention to re-visit the area and document the changes of the last 25 years.
