There were seven new M&SE Co-ops opened in 1929. Only Hardy Lane has survived as a Co-op. The list of the seven and eventually I got around to Burnage to spot some of them. Now a small independant grocery store and newsagents - at least it is not boarded up and derelict. It's at the corner of Parrs Wood Road and Heyscroft Road.

It has the roof at the back you can walk out onto, as did Hardy Lane. It also has two satellite dishes. Click the picture for the bigger view.

Also Opened in 1929 # 2 - Warwick Road South

This store is considered to be in Ladybarn/Withington and is near the border between Withington and Didsbury East wards. The other side of Parrs Wood Road going Southwards from about this point is within Burnage ward though please do not expect the residents to resile from a Withington or even Didsbury address.

You can email : coop AT with any information that will help in the making of this history.
