This was taken in 1933.
It looks like the estate was slowly disappearing around this time as the new houses were being built around it.
Silver Hill Farm was located off Stockport Road, the entrance being opposite the Zion Church.
I was always interested in finding out more about it, although long gone, as the house where I was brought up was built on the Orchard of the farm.
Up until finding this picture, I had only ever seen the gate posts of the farm which were on a photo which has been previously shown on the blog.
There is still a house called Silver Hill on Stockport Road (middle left). This was a childrens nursery school when I was growing up in the 1960's.
( I will add more history to the post when I can access it ).
