SJ8195 : Oakland House, Talbot Road, Stretford

taken 8 years ago, near to Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester, Great Britain

Oakland House, Talbot Road, Stretford
Oakland House, Talbot Road, Stretford
One of a cluster of substantial post-war office blocks in the Old Trafford area, perhaps part of a drive to attract business in the face of ailing industry. There is a local station, and the nearby A56 runs, in one direction, to what was the Stretford by-pass or M62 when it opened in 1960 (now the M60), and, in the other direction, to central Manchester.
This one is extraordinarily long, particularly in relation to its depth.
Its current occupants included several public bodies such as probation services and the local NHS trust.
