The housing estate is Mount Drive looking towards Church Lane, and the welfare is the Girls Institute on Chadwick Street it had just left the Trinity Methodist Chapel  then in the fifties went to the memorial park.

Three photos of Marple Station in 1980 provided by a gentleman called Paul Mallett who used to live on Station Road have been added to the Tour this morning.

Also several images from a school project on Child Welfare and Youth Work, written by K. Taylor in 1949 that has recently come into Marple Local History Society's hands.

I could do with some help on these:

Where is the new Housing Estate? And where was the Welfare Centre?

Some photos of Middlewood Higher Station during demolition of the south bound platform and chopping off of the edge of the northbound platform in 1966 have been added to the Virtual Tour this evening. The photos have been provided by Martin Stafford, who as a young man of 17 ran a huge, but ultimately unsuccessful, campaign to keep the line between Rose Hill and Macclesfield open.

Martin really did make a huge effort and he has given me all his letters and campaign material from the mid 1960s including numerous newspaper cuttings. I plan to pass the package on to Friends of Rose Hill Station if they are interested and then to Marple Local History Society for their archives.

Some fascinating stuff! Shame we don't know who the people are.

Can anyone recognise the land for sale?

More of the glass slides provided by Alan McDowell have gone on-line this morning:

Quite a few mystery people unfortunately, but interesting all the same.

Just one box of slides to go now.
Photo 7 of three women, possibly Hollins Terrace off Hollins Lane.

A special treat today on the Virtual Tour, as I've uploaded images from the first of four boxes of glass slides provided by a gentleman called Alan McDowell.

As well as the new images and close-ups here:

It has allowed the following pictures that were already on the Tour to be updated with much better versions:

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=605
http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=606

A very BIG thank you to Alan for saving these slides from the dustbin, finding the Virtual Tour on-line and sending them to me.

I hope to get the rest of the slides on-line during this week, so what this space!
