Peter Topping and Andrew Simpson have been working together for a number of years developing projects linked to the history of South Manchester. It is, as Peter said, a collaboration where he paints the pictures and Andrew tells the stories. Their work has appeared in venues across South Manchester, including an 80 metre mural, which was commissioned by a large building company and opened by Lord Bradley of Withington in 2012. Peter and Andrew also work independently.

     Peter’s work is much admired and he regularly exhibits his work, showcasing it on his website

     Andrew writes extensively on a range of historical subjects, contributing to various publications including Canadian ones and produces a popular history blog at His books include a study of rural Chorlton in the 19th century, a book on Manchester in the Great War, which was published in February 2017 and The Ever Open Door - 150 Years of The Together Trust.
