Between Withington and West Didsbury, Burton Road is one of south Manchester’s most happening suburban streets. Its independent shops, quirky bars and diverse restaurants are a magnet for both locals and visitors... and the perfect subject for an inquisitive urban sketcher.

Since the Covid lockdowns Len Grant has cycled up and down Burton Road with his sketchbook and paints to document the bustling street as it gets to grips with life post-pandemic.

With contributions from his daughter Rebecca, his sketches and stories are brought together in this terrific volume.
