Deepdale Court Northwold Drive Manchester M9 7HX
On the way betwixt somewhere and there I took time to come here.
A tower block on high ground on the edge of Blackley.
One of nine seventeen-storey blocks containing eight hundred and forty six dwellings.
Committee approval date: 1967
Building contractor: Direct Municipal Labour
The two blocks that were demolished were Tunstall Court and Skelton Court.
Freshfields as listed is the new name for Grisedale Court as was sold by council and now private flats.
There are 16 floors in each block, 15 on one side and 16 on the other side
This area is known as the Charlestown Towers.
1987 – Grisedale Court with circular tiles in the entrance.
Over time the balconies have been boxed in and more recently the glazing replaced.
I was particularly interested in the hand made tiles inside the entrance – very much in the style of William Mitchell.
One thought on “Deepdale Court – Blackley”
