Re: st thomases infants school heath rd

Re: st thomases infants school heath rd

Why do you say that I've lived in the Ashton area over 70 years and more than likely the house you now live in was built on green belt land, this is reclaimed land for about 7/8 houses, ? how many were built where you live
