This graphic novel was inspired by a ‘Common Third’

of residents, staff and students from Salford Loaves and Fishes and the University of Salford. Common Thirds are shared activities, linking individuals, groups and communities; creating space for inclusion, participation, creativity, and discovery. During lockdown, parks symbolised the importance of communal spaces and nature. This book is a celebration of Peel Park in Salford,

highlighting our relationships, memories, love and connection to nature. It accompanies our film about

Peel Park with music, poetry, prose, art, photography and research, which you can find here:
