I remember coming to Swinton several times in the 70's and 80's and was just wondering exactly where the ground used to be ?

 

Is it where the housing estate called the Gateways now sits abutting the railway line ??

Hi Lee

 

Yes, it was the plot of land where The Gateways now stands, with the railway line forming the boundary on one side.

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.

DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.

Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.

That is right - it was the plot bordered by Pendlebury Road, Townsend Road, Lynton Avenue and the Railway line.

 

As for why Swinton moved out .... that is murky story.
