‘The Cotton Church’ publication

Heritage Works - ‘The Cotton Church’ publication

Heritage Works Buildings Preservation Trust contracted Countryscape to produce a booklet on the history of St. Peter’s Church in Ancoats, Manchester: an historic Anglican church which dates back to the 1850s, when Ancoats was the centre of the city’s cotton industry. In 2006 the church was restored and now plays an important role as a community centre.

All Work and No Play? An Ancoats Scrapbook

Heritage Works - All Work and No Play? An Ancoats Scrapbook

Heritage Works Buildings Preservation Trust contracted Countryscape to produce a publication based on the ‘All Work & No Play’ project, which from 2005-2006 recorded and archived the oral histories, photographs and other memorabilia of the current and former residents and workers of Ancoats – an inner-city suburb of Manchester and formerly the hub of the city’s cotton industry. The emphasis of the project was on leisure time rather than the industrial history of the area.
