About the publication

A collection of poems which tells the story of Manchester Docks, richly illustrated with stunning images. It takes the reader on a historical journey, starting in 1887 with the construction of the Manchester Ship Canal to the dock's closure in the 1980s and its successful reincarnation as Salford Quays and Media City. Artist L S Lowry, canal navvies and a BBC producer are just some of the voices who demand to be heard in this engaging collection of poetic reportage. Lynn Pegler, who lives near Northwich, started writing the poems as part of her final portfolio for a masters degree in creative writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, headed up by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
