Lunch-time Talk: Chocolate-box Cranford: An Idyll?

Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford is famed for its portrayal of picture-perfect English village life, and its well-loved illustrations by Hugh Thomson help to paint this chocolate-box picture.

But is there more to Cranford than the idyllic image suggests? Find out in this talk by Anthony Burton, which anticipates our exciting new Cranford exhibition. And take a look at our first edition of Cranford here at the House, which belonged to Elizabeth Gaskell herself!
