The Forum with Ben #63 Rose Hill Woods

To mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edward Watkin, we celebrate this renowned Victorian railway engineer and Liberal MP with a visit to Rose Hill in Northenden, where he lived for all his adult life, and speak to historian Geoff Scargill about the great man, the restored Rose Hill Woods and this year's celebrations in his memory. Produced by Ben Cooper for Wythenshawe FM 97.2 for broadcast 200 years on from the date of Watkin's birth 26th September 1819.
