It’s time for another of my ‘Three Tales…’ shows!
As I’ve done ‘Three Tales’ of Old Crumpsall, Cheetham Hill, Collyhurst and Chadderton, I’ve run out of ‘Cs’ now! But fortunately there are still loads more places to choose from! This week’s show will have Three Tales of Old Alkrington. I’m going to go right back to 1842 to start with, before moving through to the early twentieth century. I’ve got stories on fortune-telling (or is it?), a hurricane (or is it?), and the development of the Garden City movement (it really is!).
As well as these Alkrington Tales, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers.
