After four years of researching and writing my book, I have begun a new journey into the history of Angel Meadow by started a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Manchester Centre for Regional History.
I’ll be taking a deeper dive into the origins and persistence of the slum, and trying to find out more about the people who lived there. My book is now a key text for students on the Manchester and the City course at MMU and is on sale at Blackwells bookshop on Oxford Road.
I have a couple of talks planned as well in the next few months. I’ll be at the Chorlton Book Festival in November and at Manchester Central Library early next year. Do keep following this blog for the latest updates.
