This week, I’m taking a trip to Strangeways.
Inspired by a conversation at the Cheetham and Crumpsall Heritage Society recently, I felt like taking a closer look at the history of Strangeways.
So far, the story that has most interested me is that of Mrs Margaret Taylor, a woman whose family leased Strangeways Hall in the late eighteenth century. Mrs Taylor operated a boarding school for genteel young ladies at the hall, but she also wrote a book outlining what she believed were the important aspects of education for charges such as hers: An easy introduction to general Knowledge and liberal education; by Mrs Taylor: for the use of the young ladies, at Strangeways Hall, Manchester.
In addition to this, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And I’ll have a special announcement about a new show on North Manchester FM as well!
