The Liverpool Cowkeepers
The mid-1800s witnessed a mass exodus from the Pennine ‘Dales’ as the then latest generation of farmers and miners sought a new life in the New World. However, many of these found a new life for themselves a bit closer to home – they became Liverpool Cowkeepers, keeping cows in their back yards and selling milk to a rapidly expanding city population with an insatiable need for fresh food.

'That can't possibly be a prison.'
Red brick houses, manicured tree-lined lawns and not a thing out of place. Once a former orphanage, Styal opened as a female prison with the first female prisoners transferred from Strangeways back in 1962.
Eddie Tarry, Community Engagement Manager at Styal prison, knows about the realities of inmate life and what exactly happens on a daily basis. He has stories on inmates he has worked with, ones he had helped and ones that would never leave the walls of Styal.
