Sorry, mate. Gone through the A-Z (and the little grey cells) with a fine tooth comb. Nothing comes together.

Seems like the address might be Hayes Road, then? But there's nothing like the "Holland" as a district of Manchester.

Andy may have put his finger on it, though. It was certainly common (at least in Stockport) for the address to be, say, 3 Little Street, Bigger Street, Evenbiggerarea, Stockport. Which is going to be damn all help to you I'm afraid. Come back to me when you've done the "breaking and entering".

one (slight) problem is the old terraced housing on the outskirts of the city was flattened in the 60/70s, so the old road may not exist anymore

that would include the HULME area, i'm struggling to think of another

Desmond, old chum........

Due to chaps from o'er the water making fun of our tourist attractions and government sponsored accommodation complex, this is now just called HMP Manchester. Doesnt have quite the same cachet.
