H is for Haughton Green
Haughton Green is an ancient locality in South-east Lancashire. In 1894 it merged with neighbouring Denton.
Originally a rural area, with most of its built up areas along the main roads and in the old village, it became more built up when the Manchester (Beswick) overspill estate was located here in the late 50s behind existing housing on Two Trees Lane. There was also building of new middle class housing in and around the original village at the same time. This increased its size significantly as housing now extended down into the valley and next to wooded areas.
I first posted some photos of Haughton Green here in September 2009.
