Artefact

Me and my sister were so chuffed Joy Division were playing in Altrincham. We lived in Lymm and getting back home from Manchester involved the all night 263 then a cab from Altrincham to Lymm which took us forever.

The Check Inn is still there but is now Totties lap dancing bar with the entrance around the back of the building. They also played Bowdon Vale a Youth Club around this time.

The lap dancing club has gone too, it's just an empty building now. Like a lot of Altrincham's shops.
