Hi all Mancunians.
Does anyone know of the existence or demise of Rixton St. Stretford, Manchester. St.Cyprian Parish. (Ordsal in Salford)
My Grandmother lived there in 1901, just before the family move 'down south'.
I have 'googled' the address, but no luck.
I would think that it was re-developed at some point, as my sister, as a young girl, visited there in the mid 1950's, and even then it was quite run down.
Could someone place it on the 'map' for me.

Thanks.

Steve.:)

Found this when googling - pdf dated 2007 Archaeological Studies

ORDSALL HALL, SALFORD An Archaeological Geophysical survey undertaken by the University of Manchester Archaeological Unit............................archaeological geophysical survey was carried out at the site and revealed several anomalies................................................ These may well have been the result of the later 19th and 20th century intrusion in the form of drains and utilities and late 20th century below ground investigations........................ After consultation of the map of 1891 it is possible that though confusing, they represented the remains of the now demolished Rixton Street and associated housing.


Also a mention on the National Archives, Rentcharge dated Mar 24 1966 re Salford, Lancs. (398, Ordsall Lane and 1-19, Rixton Street)

Hi, is is the street you are after.


As the docks were just a stones throw away, do you think the street and this paddel tug/steamer on the Manchester ship canal were named after some one?
