A work colleague of mine is looking to buy her 1st house & having seen perfectly nice places, but been put off by loitering gangs of dodgy looking kids, graffitti everywhere etc. was taken with a place in Lower Range Road, Denton. When she visited, the area seemed fine, with lots of smartly refurbished houses and none of the signs associated with other places she'd seen. However, people have told her that Denton is really rough & of course I've seen the 'Denton Boyz' graffitti around town.
It's possible to be close to an area with a bad repuatation & not have problems, as I know living about 1/4 mile from King's Farm, but suffering none of the nonsense associated with the place. So I didn't want to just put her off when I have only a general impression of what Denton is like. She's tried phoning the Old Bill, but they get so many enquiries of this nature, that they only respond if you write, by which time the house has gone if the area really is kosher. Does anybody who lives in the area have any real info. on what this part of Denton is like?
