Travel information about Wythenshawe

This region is found in the south of the state of ‘Manchester’. It is originally thought to be a part of the Cheshire.  The land was gifted to Manchester in 1931, as the area was undergoing lots of construction and the agencies and construction companies, were in desperate need of land. The age of construction had begun in 1920 here in Manchester. The land is thought to be covering an area of 11 sq. meters and the coordinates of the land are 53.4 N and 2.27 W. The area of Wythenshawe is almost made up of four or five smaller housing colonies. The name ‘Wythenshawe’ is derived from old English, which means ‘Withy tree woods’. The area of Wythenshawe was born, when the older counties that were present were merged and brought forth as one large county. These counties were; Northenden, Baguley, and Northern Etchells. The new county was named after the name of the present city hall, known as Wythenshawe-Hall. The Hall was under the ownership of one family, the family was known as ‘The Tatton’. The surrounding grounds and the Hall became the part of this new county, which began to be recognized as ‘Wythenshawe’. In the later years, the grounds of the land were used for housing.

 

Due to some issues, the Hall was closed to the public in 2010 and it suffered some damage in 2016, by an arsonist attack. The attack destroyed much of the roof and the floor on one level, even the tower with the bell, known as the bell tower suffered damage. To the south of the county, there is an abandoned airfield. The airfield was not always abandoned, and it was known as the United Kingdom’s only municipal airfield and its documented flights started in April 1939 and on the 19th of June 1930, the last recorded flight took off. Wythenshawe is Manchester’s oldest and largest district with housing estates as old as those made in the early 1920s.  During 1920 there was very little construction, but the construction sped up in 1940 when World War II ended. In 1960, there were still many empty spaces but these were quickly filled and now there is very little land left.
