Since its inception in early 2020, The Manchester Mill has been producing engaging and thought-provoking long-reads, each delving into a different Manchester-based topic, issue or as-yet-unexplored cultural corner. Via its unique delivery service, users are encouraged to sign up to The Mill’s mailing list to receive different stories delivered direct to their inboxes.

This week’s long-form read is penned by journalist Sophie Atkinson and explores Burnage Garden Village, an unusual neighbourhood in South Manchester that operates as a co-operative. However what starts as a piece focusing on the unique – and rare – nature of utopias soon morphs into something surprising and different. Intrigued?
