Overspill: stories from Manchester's overspill estates

Overspill explored the stories of people who moved from Manchester slum clearances during the 1950/60s to the six original 'overspill' estates across Greater Manchester, with a particular focus on Darnhill in Heywood and Langley in Middleton. Families were uprooted from inner city dwellings and moved to outer suburbs, mainly built on farmland.
