Slums, squalor and salvation
Discover how religious organisations helped the poor in Victorian Manchester
Find out the other side to Manchester’s industrial boom. For ordinary people who worked in the mills and factories, life was hard, poverty was widespread and life expectancy was very short. Discover how religious organisations provided social welfare for the poor and tried to improve their living conditions. This is a free self-guided walk.
