North Manchester Folklore

If you caught the Halloween edition of Hannah’s Bookshelf then you’ll know that I told some spooky stories about the local area. In case you missed it (or in case you’d like to listen to the stories again), you can hear the individual stories in the videos below. I’ve only recorded the Harpurhey (Hannah Beswick) story and the Crumpsall story as videos, as the Boggart Hole Clough tale is probably much better known, and you can find it on a number of other websites.
