In the week leading up to International Women’s Day, join us on this guided walk on the 6th of March, to hear stories of women hidden in Salford’s history.

Exploring New Bailey and Chapel Street, the walk highlights women who may appear only in the footnotes of history, or who seem merely incidental to the stories of men. Neither famous nor familiar, we recover the stories of these sidelined women.

Through tales of maternity, courage, protest, punishment, humiliation, enterprise, drinking, socialising, marriage, and murder, discover more about the ordinary lives of real women in Salford across the centuries.

Warning: includes reference to maternal & baby loss and suicide.

Note the walk is suitable for all adults – it is about women, not exclusively for women.

Meeting by Spice and Grind, New Bailey. The walk starts at 12.30 pm and ends at 1.30 pm. We’ll be there from 12.15 pm to welcome you.

Our walk goes ahead whatever the weather, so please dress for the weather and a walk around town.

This walk is led by Philippa Vishnyakov, a Manchester Green Badge Tour Guide, who has guided tours for locals and visitors since 2009.
