ABC Wednesday - E is for Easter at East Didsbury
On Easter Sunday this year I travelled out to East Didsbury. This flowerbed was the central feature inside the junction of the A34 Kingsway out of Manchester to Wilmslow and the A5145 from Stockport to Chorlton cum Hardy.
The reason for the huge space given to this junction is that originally it was where the trams turned round. All that is left of the old tram depot is this clock tower, preserved by Tesco as a landmark.
Despite the 24 hour sign though, even Tesco is closed on Easter Sunday and the normally busy carpark is Empty.
