BBC news wanted an expert on the history of Cheetham Hill, Red Bank and Angel Meadow, with particular reference to the legendary Sister Elizabeth Prout, who worked amongst the Victorian poor relieving those most afflicted, so they turned to New Manchester Walks’s Ed Glinert. You can too on any of around a hundred local tours.
Sister Elizabeth Prout operated out of the then newly-built St Chad’s on Cheetham Hill Road. Because of her selfless work the Vatican is now considering her for canonisation. Visit the church and hear the story on our Angel Meadow and Strangeways tours.
