Where is Bowdon anyway?
This section and the two below it contain various maps of Bowdon. This one shows the location of the township within the context of Altrincham, the Borough of Trafford, and Greater Manchester.
The electoral ward map shows the complete ward of Bowdon, which extends westwards as far as the Manchester Ship Canal to include Dunham Massey and Warburton. It is predominantly rural.
The final section contains a street map of Bowdon and the area covered by this project. Even though some people may well quibble about the precise boundaries of Bowdon, I decided that the electoral ward map, or more specifically the south-eastern corner of it, would serve as a good enough basis for the purposes of this project. So there.
Apart from some gated developments, all the streets of Bowdon have now been photographed at least once.
If you live on one of the gated developments, please get in touch!
The latest addition to the site features links to pdf files of all the 60 (and counting) "Bowdon Sheaf" publications as published by the Bowdon History Society. If local history is your thing, this is for you!
I've now started the second round of photography, so keep your eyes peeled for a charming geezer in a yellow high-vis vest.
