A fascinating selection of stories and more than 140 paintings, pictures and maps,
discovering the quirkiness of
Chorlton-cum-Hardy and the quirky
people that live, or have lived there.
Stories of the unusual, the odd, the bizarre, the eccentric and our much loved
Chorlton personalities and quirky buildings.
Not to mention more than a smattering of famous people like George Best, The Bee
Gees, John Rylands and Matt Busby.
Now it is time to look at some of the more recent traditions, and personalities of
the last half century and a bit of Chorlton’s history.
This is a book about the history of Chorlton from a very different angle. And like
our two pubs books, we have designed Quirks, both as a story to be read in front
of the fire, or as a series of walks taking the intrepid seeker to all things quirky
across Chorlton, from east to west and back again.
