 Brief description of your activity focus
My research centres on urban municipal parks in the twentieth century. I am interested in usage, sporting and recreational amenities

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My PhD focussed on the development of a large urban municipal park in Manchester UK, Heaton Park in the early twentieth century. Since then, I have gone on to study later parks developments across Manchester, concentrating on the interwar years. I am very interested in the municipal political culture in which the parks developed and how debates about their usage and later developments were framed, especially in the local newspapers.
I am currently contracted by Routledge to write a book entitled The Greening of the City: Urban Parks and Public Culture to be published in 2015.
