I was born and lived thirty years in Manchester. I spent a lot of time in Harry Boardman's folk club. Harry was a great singer and dialect speaker. Bowton's Yard being one of the songs he sang.
His recordings have recently been released on CD:
Topic Records TSCD 485
The CD is a compilation from two albums Deep Lancashire & Owdham Edge.
(thanks to Mark Dowding who emailed me with this info recently. I've not had chance to get the CD yet.)
