Dear Moss Siders!

My names is James and I am a history student at MMU. I am currently trying to make a historical documentary about the ‘slum’ clearances and the subsequent rehousing and developments that took place in Moss Side in the 1970s. I particularly want to focus on the effect this had on the local community both initially and long term.

If anyone here (or knows someone who) lived in Moss Side during this renovation or was relocated by the developments or just anyone who has lived in Moss Side over the years and would like to be interviewed to give a story about this please get in touch! I feel that this is a part of Moss Sides history that has not been fully explored and so I think it would be amazing to meet and interview some people who were really there at the time and get an insight.

Many thanks,

James
