Take a look at a gallery of old photos captured in Tyldesley Town Centre.

If you have any you would like to send across.. Fortyldesleyevents@outlook.com we will add them to the gallery.

Come and take a peek inside one of Tyldesley's oldest and most Iconic buildings, Franks Cafe. Established in 1945 the Cafe has seen numerous owners over the years from the original Frank to the most recent Mike and Robbie, who served here for 35 years and even had a late-night license. The building itself dates back to the late 1700s and has many secrets to uncover. Currently under renovation as part of a project run by For Tyldesley and in association with Historic England we get to take a peek behind closed doors and uncover some fantastic history and secrets that lie within.

Special thanks to The Urban Collective for putting together the video.

We have been working with Radio M29 to produce a series of Tyldesley Tales, local stories from days gone by. Places where Tyldesley people used socialise, work and live that have long since disappeared. Local lad Vince Mather is our first contributor. He explains how moving to Princes Avenue was like "living in paradise". Stories from Astley Green Colliery as an apprentice electrician and how his wife sold thousands of M&S knickers from her new shop on Elliott Street. Look out for updates when the series goes live on Radio M29
