Look­ing back at town ori­gins

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

A HIS­TO­RIAN en­ter­tained an art group with his il­lus­trated ex­hi­bi­tion of how the town cen­tre had de­vel­oped from the 18th cen­tury.

Mathew Hyde en­ter­tained 30 peo­ple vis­it­ing Mac­cles­field Com­mu­nity Artspace based at Sut­ton Mill, on Heapy Street.

The talk, called His­tory Through the Win­dow, looked at the cop­per works, brick­works and clay pits through the later devel­op­ment of silk and pa­per mills, canals and rail­ways in the 19th cen­tury to the 20th cen­tury in­dus­tries still here.

Tea and Talks run on the first Sun­day of the month from 4pm to 5.30pm.
