Description

Elizabeth Gaskell in Town & Plymouth Grove (1300 - 1630)

Meet War Memorial, St Peter's Square, M2 4EG (behind the Town Hall)

We look at the many connections Elizabeth Gaskell had in Manchester city centre before travelling by bus to Plymouth Grove, South Manchester where she lived for 15 years and where she wrote many of her novels. Her home has been beautifully restored just as if she had stepped out for five minutes, so on this tour we truly step back in time, to a middle–class household in the mid 1800s. We sit in her drawing room, pick books off the shelf in the study, whilst hearing stories about her busy life, her books and also Manchester at the time. We finish by taking delicious tea and cake!

Price £20 - includes Eventbrite booking fee, donation to Cross St Chapel, entry into Plymouth Grove and refreshments.
