Gaskell's Manchester Walking Tour
With Ed Glinert
When Mrs Gaskell’s Mary Barton appeared in 1848 it kicked up a storm in cultured Mancunia. Could the wife of the Unitarian minister at Cross Street Chapel really have written so vituperative an account of those kindly, God-fearing mill owners? Ed Glinert leads this walk around sights and sites significant to the life and work of this fascinating writer, finishing up with a visit to the historic and recently re-opened Elizabeth Gaskell's House.
