Isn't this interesting? Tyldesley is a good place to visit for new visitors and repeat visitors.

The scaffolding was finally removed this weekend following the fitting of the first-floor windows over the weekend. This will make it easier for the joiners to fit the new shop front to Franks Café which was delivered this morning, hopefully it will be fitted this week, and the glazing will follow on at a later date.  Thanks to Tyldesley Historical Society for researching the advertisement revealed on the Lime Street elevation. With a bit more digging we plan to refresh the sign using traditional signwriting skills.

Can you spot a Grundy's Grid?

Are you going on holiday? Have you moved away from the area, can you spot a Grundy's Grid!

There's prizes to be won for the grid spotted furthest away! All entries to be submitted before the end of September. Winners will be announced as part of the heritage open day celebrations in September.

Send your submissions to with your name and location, a close up and one slightly further away for context (and so we can check you aren't cheating too obviously) .

What's the history of Grundy's Grids?

I'm Julie and I volunteer for community engagement projects. So far i've worked on Grundy's Grids and Tyldesley Tales. Born and bred in Tyldesley.

I'm very proud of the community spirit and the people. I was brought up in Ash Street and have very fond memories of Tyldesley Wakes visiting Shakerley Common as a child.

Also as a proud Rotarian (Tyldesley and Atherton) I see the benefits daily of getting involved in your local community and being inspired by others.

Away from the High Street For Tyldesley have been working with a group of local junior school teachers developing a High Street Time Capsule Project to engage the younger members of our community in local heritage and culture. They will create 60 Time Capsule boxes to be kept safe and opened in ten years’ time with the next generation of young people who will hopefully be inspired to continue the sensitive development of our high street and our heritage.

Until you see the before and after you can't fully appreciate what has been done. 119 Elliott Street now our HAZ office (Heritage Action Zone) What makes the biggest difference for you? Personally we LOVE the set back door and tiling.

Thank you to all the lovely comments we've had so far!

Historic England have commissioned a short film to mark the halfway point ( 2 years) of our Tyldesley Highstreets Action Zone (HAZ) project. Thanks to all the beneficiaries, traders and residents who took part in the filming. I know you didn't all make the final edit and know you will be disappointed.

Your enthusiasm and passion for Tyldesley was great to see and continues to motivate the delivery team during the challenging days we sometimes have to overcome.

We still want to thank you for contributing and appreciate your support. We hope you make the final cut if they decide to make another film at the end of the project and hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment of the film.

At the other end of the High Street Trinity Renovations have now turned their attention on to 206 Elliott Street. Lee – pictured and Pavla plan to use the ground floor as an office space for their business and fit out the first floor and attic space as a high specification apartment with amazing views across the Cheshire plain. After shot coming soon!
