A Helping of History - 19/11/2019

A Helping of History - 19/11/2019

This week, I’m going to be taking another look in my folder of quirky oddities and curiosities – those stories that didn’t make the history books, but that offer a little slice-of-life from the past. As last week’s show was a Middleton Miscellany, I’m calling this week’s show a Prestwich Pot Pourri!

I’ve got a shocking tale of seduction from 1843 (with a bit of a twist in the tail), a festive treat for some older gentlemen, and sightings of an uncanny apparition. Even by my standards, today’s stories are rather strange!

As well as sharing my little Prestwich Pot Pourri, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers on the show!
