Tune in to North Manchester FM on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History. This week, I’m going to be talking about the strange case of the century-long feud that was eventually solved by a magician! I’ll be talking about Theale Moor, an area of land on the borders of Moston, Middleton, Chadderton and Hollinwood… and about the violent dispute that once raged over it (and the intervention of a very colourful character from Manchester’s history).
As always, I’ll be taking a look at Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s iconic buildings?
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).
