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.
