Event description

Description

This is the perfect opportunity to come and talk local history with Margaret Manchester! Margaret lives in County Durham, England, with her husband and two sons. She was born in Weardale and spent her childhood there. ​Her research into family history showed many branches of her family had lived and worked in the area for centuries, and this sparked her interest in local history. Whilst she studied local history and archaeology, Margaret worked as a guide at Killhope Lead Mining Museum. She was awarded a Masters degree in Archaeology from the University of Durham and went on to teach archaeology, local history and genealogy.

As well as writing, Margaret is managing director of a multiple award-winning business; she is the chair of a charity that supports industrial heritage; and she enjoys spending time in her garden and with her dogs.

Her first novel 'The Lead Miner's Daughter' was published in 2018.
