'Welcome to 84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester.  For over 150 years, this house has been associated with its most famous resident: the novelist, Elizabeth Gaskell, who lived here from 1850 to 1865 ... The House, now a Grade II* listed property, was built between 1835-1841 on the outer edge of the growing city.  It was built as part of a new suburban development planned by Richard Lane and is a rare example of the elegant Regency-style villas once popular in Manchester.' Offer a range of talks,  conversations, courses, etc, on subjects related to Elizabeth Gaskell.
