Purchase of Land at St. Margaret's

Compulsory purchase of land by the Manchester Corporation

How was the land for the Burnage estates acquired?

John Pollard, archivist at St. Margaret's Church, Burnage, has shared these documents, the first of which details the purchase of lands 'in or near Burnage Lane, Errwood Road and Mauldeth Road... bounded on the west by Burnage Lane, on the south by Mauldeth Road, on the east by the City Boundary and on the north by the Burnage Housing Estate..'

In the second, we see the properties, occupiers and owners affected by the compulsory purchase orders made by the Manchester Corporation.
