An orchard on Shudehill

This week’s 101 Treasures page features William Hulme’s 1753 plan of his home near Shudehill and the land immediately around it. It is an amazing glimpse into a small town before the arrival of mills and chimneys and shuttles and noise, and even features a beautiful small orchard where there now stands shops, carparks, hotels and a bus station. You can read more about this forgotten world on the blog.
