Bacup

Bacup is a small town in Lancashire, north of Manchester. It is in a valley. It has lots of terraced houses. Anthropologist Jeanette Edwards called it a ‘hive of sociality’.

The town developed during the industrial revolution as a centre of the shoe manufacturing industry. Edwards talked about how it had been affected by ‘social transformation’ in the 20th century. In the late 20th century came de-industrialisation. 040DD65D-A8F8-45D2-AAEB-EA91AC9FEB98
