Hooray! This Sunday is First Sunday - April 1st - and I am delighted Alan Smith is curating this months derive, continuing on from last months lost rivers but in a very different style and with a river you can actually see.
"Join us on Sunday for a trip up the mighty Medlock. We'll be following the river Medlock as it meanders through the city linking surprisingly disparate areas, from shining modernity to industrial wasteland and every point between, finally ending in a haven for nature overlooked by many. We'll be meeting outside Deansgate Station (look out for the giant bicycle under the railway arch) at 1pm. This is quite a long walk (approx. 2hrs) and probably not suitable for children."
Next Month - May - we will be exploring the legacy of the luddites in this bicentenary year. If anyone has a special interest in this area please holler and I will be glad to buy you a beverage and have a chat about how best to do this x
