Places and spaces

The Re/Place writers are going to be exploring reappropriated and ghost places and spaces in the Chorlton-cum-Hardy environs, including a Temperance Movement billiard hall turned pub, the unique Chorltonville garden estate, shadowy traces of Cosgrove Hall, a paddling pool in Chorlton Park, the Art Deco delight that is Longford Cinema and the old St Clement’s Church graveyard (the entrance to which is in the image below, with Re/Place writers David Gaffney and Sarah-Clare Conlon).
