A Helping of History - 25/09/2018

Playing tracks by

Neil Diamond, Jeff Beck, Squeeze, Chairmen Of The Board, Dolly Parton and more.

This week, we’re going Up the Junction (Middleton Junction, that is).

Bordering Mills Hill, Alkrington, Foxdenton and Greengate, and named after a now closed railway station, Middleton Junction is an area rich in history. I’ll be talk about some of my favourite stories from the area’s past, including the now-almost-forgotten Bradshaw Hall estate and the influential Jumbo Farm Tea Party. Find out more on Tuesday’s show!

I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark building?

Listen every Tuesday from 12-2pm, North Manchester FM, 106.6 FM
