Grand villas, Gothic towers and glorious golden gardens in bloom characterise this most sumptuous of south Manchester suburbs.
We will find the home of the celebrated author Howard Spring; hear tales about the anarchic comics Steve Coogan, Rick Mayall and Adrian Edmonson; the merchants Philip Godlee, Joseph Birley and Daniel Adamson; the prolix alderman Fletcher Moss, stopping at the latter’s tucked-away cottage, the Old Parsonage; the botanical beauty that is the Alpine garden; ancient St James’s Church; the Old Cock Inn and the magnificent Towers, the finest mansion in Manchester.
