Trafford Park's industrial fame rests on the reputation of its industrial estate, said to be the world's first. Trafford Park grew out of the rural estate created by the de Traffords and is a place with a long history. This book is an account of that history, starting from the legends of Saxon times, the personalities and events of the de Traffords' long reign which can be traced to the coming of the Manchester Ship Canal and their decision to sell the estate. The part played by E. T. Hooley, the speculator, is analysed, then the relentless build up of industry by Trafford Park Estates despite the obstacles.
