Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sharston is an area within the Wythenshawe district of South Manchester, in the North West of England. The area was initially mostly industrial, with Sharston Industrial Estate containing a post office (with an area sorting office), a dairy, and a Bisto factory, and various other businesses. However, more recent boundary changes in the Wythenshawe district now consider Sharston to cover a considerable portion of residential housing along Wythenshawe's east side. The industrial estate consists of sectors named after letters of the Greek alphabet. Alpha Point is notable for its 128 m zirconium pinnacle designed by the corporate artist Chris Gately. The Beta sector was once the home of the Ramsees Piso Bush Jam factory. This building later became the headquarters of Jam Factory Records who kept most of the original plant machinery which is still used to make speciality jams to promote album releases.show more
