Ged Austin, Manchester’s Urban Poet, comes back to Handforth

Monday, 23rd May, 2022 10:00am til 2:00pm

Manchester's Urban Poet Ged Austin, an experienced guide, is giving a tour of "Handforth Past and Present" sponsored by The Friends of Handforth Station.

This is one of a series of educational walks that Ged runs each year. His "Urban Walks" are typically gentle strolls over a 5-mile distance with plenty of stops, and they can take 3 to 4 hours.

The Handforth walk that Ged is preparing for the FoHS will be from Styal train station to Handforth train station, and will be a "timeline walk" exploring the history of the area. It will feature Ged's poems and some stories about the area, to which all are welcome to contribute.

The Handforth Past and Present walk will start from Styal train station at 10.30am sharp.
