taken 13 years ago, near to Middleton, Rochdale, Great Britain

Looking down Langdale Drive, Langley from its junction with Hollin Lane. Langley is a large housing estate to the northwest of Middleton and is one of Europe's largest council housing estates. Langley was bought by Manchester Corporation to establish a reservoir. The development of Manchester's water supply in the Lake District made it surplus to requirements and the land was used for re-housing the thousands of people made homeless by the city's slum clearance programme after the Second World War.
