More about the University of Manchester
Its basicaly a 1970's council estate. Its quite a big estate stretching from Moss Side into Whalley Range. The area had a big problem with prositution a while back but I think they have sorted that one out now.
Another thing about that area is its a bit cut off, it dosn't have the same lively night live as other areas such as Chorlton, Didsbury and Fallowfield have.
I don't mean to scare you here,
but the Alanxandra Park estate is perhaps one of the roughest parts of Manchester. There are lot of gang members living in that estate who have got involved in gun crime.
Where abouts exactly is it? If not in the estate and is in the whalley range area it won't be too bad, but the nearest town will be Chorlton and thats a good 10 minutes away by bus.
my boyfriend went to high school (not sure what you call "high school" in england) in moss side about 20 years ago and said it was rough then but is unsure how it is now. i know that's close to this woman's house, but not how close. there was another thread on this site where people were asking questions about moss side and everyone thought it was grungy but ok in the daytime. if i had the funds, i'd come and see for myself, but it's expensive this time of year, and i'm not quite ready to leave yet, you know? definitely can't pay for two flights. these smileys are so funny...
Wellington Road isn't as bad as the area I original thought you were talking about, but its still not the nicest part of Manchester although certainly not the worst.
