North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 29 January, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 on North Manchester FM for another Helping of History. This week, I’ll be sharing Three Tales of Old Collyhurst.

Following in the footsteps of my Cheetham and CrumpsallThree Tales‘ shows, I’ve found three little stories from Victorian and Edwardian Collyhurst. These are not the sort of stories that make it into the history books, but instead give a little slice of life. Expect a notorious murder, a dodgy elopement and some unwholesome houses. (If I get time, there might be an extra little story about a horrible dog too!)

In addition to my three Collyhurst stories, I’ll be taking my usual 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).
