Edgar Wood Society – new project gearing up

Following an initial meeting at the Arts & Crafts Church in Middleton, Manchester, we’re gearing up to start work on their new website, photographic archive and community education programme.

Andy, a preeminent architectural photographer, will be documenting the most important Edgar Wood buildings. David, a conservation officer and expert in Edgar Wood, will be providing information for the site.

  • New logo and branding

  • Learning materials
  • Promotion, marketing and strategy
