I lived in Collyhurst and moved to Bowness road in 1964. OMG there was such a huge difference! From cobbled streets, back yards, no bath or toilet inside – we felt like we were in the country. Posh!

The first time I stepped inside Our Lady’s Church on Wood St I felt like I was walking into a Cathedral. 

It was so big and beautiful from the small underground church of Saint Malachys in Collyhurst – and then my sister had her wedding there! One of my best memories.
