Talk on the great Edgar Wood

Rochdale Observer - - WHAT’S ON WITH ALL ACROSS THE ARTS LISTINGS -

Trust. He has been ac­tively in­volved in the restora­tion of some of Wood’s most iconic build­ings and has writ­ten guides and lec­tures on Edgar Wood as well as con­duct­ing tours around Edgar Wood’s build­ings.

Edgar Wood (18601935) was a highly rep­utable and in­flu­en­tial Arts and Crafts ar­chi­tect, artist and fur­ni­ture de­signer. His work also spanned Art Nou­veau and Mod­ernism and he is seen as one of the most am­bi­tious ar­chi­tects of the pe­riod. He prac­tised mainly in the Greater Manch­ester and Hud­der­s­field ar­eas and his na­tive Mid­dle­ton has sev­eral build­ings de­signed by him on Long Street and Rochdale Road.

Rochdale An­tiques So­ci­ety’s events are al­ways worth a visit and this prom­ises to be a very in­ter­est­ing and wellinformed talk on this iconic lo­cal Arts and Crafts ar­chi­tect.

Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 13, at 7.30pm.

St Vin­cent’s Com­mu­nity Hall, Calder­shaw Road, off Eden­field Road, Rochdale, OL12 7QL.

An­nual mem­ber­ship is £27.50 Phone: 01706 844 026. Email: rochan­tique­[email protected]­mail.com.
