Dunham Village Hall to re-enact historic barge journey
11:41am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
DUNHAM VILLAGE Hall will be re-enacting the transportation of night-soil and sweepings along the Bridgewater Canal to Dunham Massey on a barge on September 8 from 12-4pm.
Demonstrations, displays and other activities will be held at the event, and experts
will be on hand to identify examples of ancient treasures to be found in the fields.
Historians from the area will exhibit related displays about the local agricultural and market gardening communities in Greater Manchester.
Out on the wharf there will be activities for all ages, and the barge will be loaded with heritage potatoes ready for return to Potato Wharf in Castlefield, and to the markets of Manchester.
