About This Book

Manchester has one of the darkest histories in Britain. From the Screaming Skull of Wardley Hall to an epidemic of deadly factory fires in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, you will find all manner of horrible events inside this book. With coffins washed from their graves and swept away into the city after the River Medlock burst its banks, and the streets of Salford, Gorton and Openshaw overrun by gangs in the latter quarter of the nineteenth century, as well as murders, riots, battles and plagues, the grimmest events in Manchester’s history are all here for you to explore. Read this gory and glorious book . . . if you dare!
