M is for Millbrook
This is Huddersfield Road, the main road through the village of Millbrook near Stalybridge, Cheshire. The first four of these photographs were taken about a year ago.
Near the bottom of the road is the Post Office, a survivor when many other village post offices have been closed.
From Millbrook are footpaths that lead into the Brushes Country Park.
Just higher up Huddersfield Road is the now derelict former Millbrook School. A new modern school was built a few years ago not far away.
Here is how it looked in 1991 when it was one of the stops on the Whit Friday Band Contest circuit.
I recall reading in the local paper a few months back that the building had been bought and was to be transformed into a medical centre, but my recent research on the internet has not revealed any information about this so I don't really know.
You can see the general state of the building and more of the area on Streetview. I think they visited the area around June last year.
