Didsbury means Grand villas, Gothic towers and glorious gardens in what is the most unspoilt suburb of Manchester, a picturesque prism of pulchritudiness.
On this tour through the vistas of the village we will find the home of the celebrated author Howard Spring; hear tales about the anarchic comics Steve Coogan, Rick Mayall and Adrian Edmonson; marvel at the riches of the merchants Philip Godlee, Joseph Birley and Daniel Adamson; and recall the prolix alderman Fletcher Moss (stopping at the latter’s tucked-away cottage, the Old Parsonage, the oldest house in Manchester).
We finish with the botanical beauty that is the Alpine garden; ancient St James’s Church; the Old Cock Inn and the magnificent Towers, the finest mansion in Manchester.
