Who are the Manchester Modernists?


Well... here's a photo of one of our early meetings in 1965, when founder members, Jack Hale, Maureen Ward and Eddy Rhead were bright and young.


OK that's not strictly true - but Jack, Maureen and Eddy are the folk behind the society.


We also have the help of a few tip-top experts who continually lend us their knowledge...


Richard Brook - senior lecturer at manchester school of architecture and a specialist in post war architecture in the region.


Phill Griffin - writer, broadcaster, legend and expert on all things architecturally mancunian.


Christopher Marsden - conservation secretary of the Tiles and Architectural Ceramics Society and co-ordinator of Huddersfield Gem, Huddersfield's modernist society.


Jonathan Meades - writer, broadcaster, patron.


Steve Millington - senior lecturer in human geography at manchester metropolitan university - no one loves the mancunian way more.


Steve Sanders  - our media man and PR guru.


Aidan Turner Bishop - top dog in the 20thC Society NW region.


the manchester modernist society is a not for profit unincorporated association.
