Suggestions for a Christmas present and an outrageous piece of self promotion ........ nu 3 The Story of Chorlton-cum-Hardy

Now very soon lots of you will be pondering on Christmas presents and so with that in mind here is the third and last suggestion.

Day three and The Story of Chorlton-cum Hardy.

Here for the first time is a detailed account of an agricultural community that was just 4 miles from Manchester and  the people who lived here, using their own words and records.

It tells of daily lives, setting them in a national context, and balances the routine with the sensational - including murder, infanticide and a rebellion.

Partly a narrative of rural life and a description of a community's relationship with a city, the book also include guided walks around Chorlton a database of references and sources.

Available from Chorlton Book shop, 506 Wilbraham Road, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester M21 9AW 0161 881 6374
