Aeriel view of Hoviley.
An early 1970's aeriel map before the M67 motorway was opened showing Hoviley Brow and where Morrisons Supermarket now stands. Mottram Road runs across the bottom of the photo
A look at a modern map shows that the shape of Hoviley Brow/Hoviley was kept to a degree, just the name was changed, as a continuation to Clarendon Place. I think they should have kept the name Hoviley .... although, on a post from 15th November 2011 there is still a sign stating "Hoviley" on the wall on Commercial Street.
Map from 1897
Looking along Hoviley, towards Hoviley Brow in the far distance, (going up to the left) and George Street (going up to the right). The white building is the Kings Arms Pub.
(Many thanks Meglet and Hyde Lad) :)
A couple of cans of Flick and Gunk that are mentioned in the comments.
David Stafford still has both cans which are still half full !!
Thanks David :)
