  • Hi daddyblue, I guess it all depends what you are looking for and what your circumstances are - eg age, whether you have children etc - as to whether an area is good for you. By following the link below to a property in Dukinfield and clicking on "Local Info" tab you can see that the town has been given a rating of 72 per cent. This is based on feedback by Zoopla members who gave parks and recreation 4.5 stars out of five, along with transport and travel in the area. Restaurants and shopping only received two stars, but you are only around eight miles away from the bright lights and retail outlets of Manchester. Dukinfield was originally boosted by the industrial revolution and then accelerated by the growth of coal mining and the cotton industry. Like all towns which had working pits and mills, it has had to recover and according to the 2001 census a quarter of people in employment were in manufacturing jobs, with almost 20 per cent in retail. As I mentioned above, Dukinfield is a short journey from Manchester, which provides excellent commuting opportunities, while there are also a number of primary schools and secondary schools. Does anyone live in Dukinfield who can share their experience? Thanks Scott
