If you were lucky enough to be educated in the area as a child then you’ll more that likely know the story of how it came to be called Manchester – The Romans came along merrily one day, Invaded us successfully and built a large fort on the land that is now Castlefield! This was done in order to beat the Brigantes, who were a large Celtic tribe. They controlled the majority of what would, in the future, become the North West of England. When the Romans built their fort, they decided to call it Mancunium, and over the years as time passed by, the name evolved to become what we now know as Manchester, famous for so many fascinating reasons, even as a Mancunian you may be unaware of!
Moss Side for example was the birth place of Emmeline Pankhurst, In other words Mother of the Suffragette movement.
