Published continuously since 1987, the Manchester Region History Review journal has established itself as the region’s leading local history magazine with its wide range of articles covering all aspects of the region’s history.

The All-New Review

We are delighted to announce a new phase in the history the Manchester Region History Review. The Review will take the form of a free online open-access magazine, published quarterly. The new-look Manchester Region History Review features articles and research, news, events and reviews about the rich history and heritage of our region.

We hope that the new format of the journal will enable the Review to continue its wide appeal to its current readership, but also enable it to attract newer audiences, including those working, volunteering or with an interest in museums, archives, libraries, heritage and community projects; local, community and family historians and enthusiasts; academics, researchers and students. The free online open-access format of the Review will mean the Manchester Region History Review will be available to anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world. Read online or download for later:
