Scholes
 Scholes   by Neil Cobbe  (HTC Desire Z mobile)
New social housing just completed in Scholes alongside an older example from the late 1960s.

Good photo. The new Scholes, it looks a lot cleaner but will it have the character.


Comment by Mick on 3rd March 2011 at 07:44
There stylish and they blend in very nicely.


Comment by John on 3rd March 2011 at 09:40
Lovely, are they council or private ownership?


Comment by Roy H on 3rd March 2011 at 10:17
I know it's progress, but it doesn't have the same character as the old buildings. Is it progress though?


Comment by peterp on 3rd March 2011 at 11:43
lets hope they last longer than the houses built before them


Comment by RON on 3rd March 2011 at 12:40
I went passed there this week for the first time in a month or so. WOW what a transformation The houses look really nice. Lets hope the people who they put in their keep them up to this standard.

How can Council tennants complain when they get houses like this. Would like one myself, especially at such low rents, or in some cases - NO RENT AT ALL.


Comment by mack on 3rd March 2011 at 16:14
lets just say the homes look ok but you can bet low lifes will be in there spoiling it and bringing it back down too gutter level.

The Scholes Picture House cinema was close to the area of that red door. There was also a mens custom tailors to the right of the cinema, I cant remember the name it could have been Jewish, E H Monks provisioners was to the left of the cinema. We bought all our poultry and pig food from them. O well only memories.
