This week, I’m going to be talking about Middleton’s Hopwood Hall with the fab Hopwood DePree.
Hopwood DePree was raised in the United States where he graduated from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He began his career as an independent filmmaker, winning awards and critical acclaim. But now, he’s in Middleton, helping to rescue the Grade II*-listed Hopwood Hall (his ancestral home) from years of neglect. Hopwood has pledged both passion and resources to help preserve the building and its estate.
As well as my interview with Hopwood, Tuesday’s show will a new instalment of The Heaton Park Mystery – the baffling real-life case from 1883 – and I’ll be reading Yesterday’s Papers. And, of course, you’ll be able to pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s buildings?
