North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 2 April, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History on North Manchester FM. This week, I’ll be going back to one of my favourite topics… the incorporation of North Manchester townships in the nineteenth century.

On this week’s show, I’m going to be focusing on Crumpsall. You may remember that most recently I talked about the proposed incorporation of Failsworth into Manchester at the beginning of the twentieth century. Well, the incorporation of Crumpsall in 1890 was quite a different story! Far from being seduced to ‘amalgamate’ with Manchester, Crumpsall was put under a bit more pressure to make a decision. I’ll be talking about some of the discussions that took place in the township in the years prior to 1890. Tune in to the show to find out how Crumpsall ended up as part of Manchester.

As well as this, I’ll be taking my weekly look through Yesterday’s Papers.

Catch the show on Tuesday at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
