Well, the northern

repeated in the new video.
It runs for around 56
minutes, and is in colour, 4:3 ratio, and PAL format.

Death of historian who helped us
WE were saddened to hear of the death of
Knutsford historian, Joan Leach MBE, who had advised us on some aspects
of the town and Elizabeth Gaskell when we made the DVD.
Joan died suddenly on September 30,
after a short illness. Her funeral service was held on October 13 at
Brook Street Chapel, Knutsford, in the grounds of which the Gaskell
family are interred.
Martin Leach said: "Mum
lived her life dedicated to the love of history and to Elizabeth
Gaskell. She gave herself willingly to the cause and gave her life to
her friends and contacts through the years, selflessly doing it all for
the joy of the giving and for making others happy."
