We’ll be leading a heritage trail along Cheetham Hill Road on Friday 3rd June at 1pm to find clues from the shopping district’s retail past. Always a popular local shopping destination, Cheetham Hill Road has an amazing variety of shops providing families with everything they need. But the shops there now don’t tell the full story and we’ll be finding out some of its secrets as we explore what’s behind some of the shop fronts as revealed by the Salford and Cheetham Hill In Focus photography collection.

Meet at British Heart Foundation at 1pm. The trail is about half a mile long will last approximately 1 hour and will end at Trinity Church. Its suitable for both adults and children.

If you can’t make it to the trail then you can still do it with our handy ‘Cheetham Hill Road Shop Heritage Map’. Using your smartphone you can see eleven shop fronts along the High Street as they were in the 1950s and 60s.

Just download the Map and the Clues and follow these links to the images (in the same order as the trail)…..and have fun!
