June event: A Walk round Bury

Manchester Group June Event

A Walk round Victorian Bury led by Mark Watson.
The walk will cover Bury town centre looking especially at the fine architectural sculpture on many buildings, including those by the London architect Smirke who designed Bury’s first major civic scheme, two local architectural firms, Maxwell and Tuke and Moulds and Porritt and monuments and war memorials by Lutyens and Blomfield. Visits to the Parish Church (Crowther) and the Art Museum (Woodhouse and Willoughby) are included. In addition there will be a “castle”, a Temperance billiard hall and we finish at an ornate fountain with basins which allowed up to three horses, three dogs and two men to drink at the same time.
