‘This photo was shot at Johnny Marr’s house early 1986 – All I can remember is waiting nervously whilst the hairdresser spent a long time on Morrissey’s quiff.’ Stephen Wright

‘I think we knew, subconsciously, that we had to shut the outside world out.’ Johnny Marr

Five miles south of Stretford, is another lesser known spiritual home to The Smiths. Early chart success on a London label had originally necessitated a group move down south, but it wasn't long before Metropolitan isolation, homesickness and the rigours of promotion forced Johnny Marr to lead a return exodus north. Which is why, at the end of 1984, he bought a house in the Cheshire village of Bowdon. It was destined to become the band's Greater Manchester HQ for the remainder of their career.
