History talk about Manchester’s Grade 1 Listed Buildings

The CGN January History talk will be next Thursday, the 12th January , at 1.30pm , not tomorrow . Bernard Leach will be talking about Manchester’s listed buildings : He writes
I will take a look at four of Manchester’s 15 Grade 1 buildings. We all know of them, but not necessarily about their history and their importance to the City. I’ll start with Manchester Town Hall. I will look at its history but also the plans for its re-opening in 2024. Then I will look at the Holy Name RC Church on Oxford Road which has an interesting history linked to Irish immigration to the city in the 19th century. Finally, Time permitting I will consider two of the city’s oldest buildings – Chetham’s School and Manchester Cathedral
