About Overspill

The Overspill Project is about the people who were moved to overspill estates from Manchester’s slum housing and has a particular focus on Darnhill in Heywood and Langley in Middleton.   There will be short film of the project, a book and exhibitions in Langley, Darnhill and at the People’s History Museum in central Manchester. The website is at Overspill Manchester.
