Postcard from Hattersley
A black and white postcard of Hattersley.
It looks like the estate is relatively new so I'd put it late 1960's/early 1970's
Between 1894 and 1936 Hattersley was a civil parish in the Tintwistle Rural District of the administrative county of Cheshire. In 1936 it was annexed to the municipal borough of Hyde but remained undeveloped. In the 1960s most of the area was purchased by Manchester city council in order to build a large overspill estate.
