This is Book 5 in a series of pocket books which will help you to do nothing in Chorlton-cum-Hardy. You can do nothing in Chorlton all in one day, in any order or dip in and out as you see fit.

     It’s the book that offers up heaps of stories about our own Chorlton Park: the grand theft by Withington; a lost racecourse; a mystery observatory and the swimming pool, theatre and air raid shelter, all of which have been forgotten.

     Along with these, are exciting new developments which make the park fit for the twenty first century as it was for the twentieth century when it opened in 1928.

     Andrew’s stories are matched by a series of original paintings by Peter, and a wealth of old and new photographs.

     It is the book with the lot.
