North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 25 September, 12-2pm

Tune in to North Manchester FM on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History. This week, we’re going Up the Junction (Middleton Junction, that is).

Bordering Mills Hill, Alkrington, Foxdenton and Greengate, and named after a now closed railway station, Middleton Junction is an area rich in history. I’ll be talk about some of my favourite stories from the area’s past, including the now-almost-forgotten Bradshaw Hall estate and the influential Jumbo Farm Tea Party. Find out more on Tuesday’s show!

I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark building?

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).
