Synopsis

The Cranford Companion by Sue Birtwistle, Susie Conklin

The thriving Cheshire town of Cranford is on the brink of momentous change, with the imminent arrival of the railways and the threat it brings to the established way of life. In this glorious book, Sue Birtwistle and Susie Conklin explain how Elizabeth Gaskell's timeless stories were interwoven to create their dramatisation; then, join Miss Matty and her friends for a guided tour round their bustling neighbourhood, before discovering how the production team recreated the costumes, landscapes and decor of an 1840s town. This beautifully illustrated volume is redolent with the attention to detail that has won Cranford so many awards.
