Ancoats - Saturday

Sat 4 Aug


John Hetherington & Sons made textile machinery at the Vulcan Works and the neighbouring site was a cotton mill
Albion Mill. Both works on Pollard St are now converted into flats and offices.

 The Bank of England, now firmly closed a little further north on Pollard St

 Ancoats Works next door was a furniture factory

 and beyond it is Hope Mill, one of the first industrial buildings on the canal, a former cotton mill dating from the
  early 1820s and now with various art studios and businesses


 The Church of All Soul on Every Street was designed by William Haley in a rather curious version of Romanesque
 and built in 1839-40. It closed as a church and was also listed Grade II in 1984. It currently appears to be unused

 Palmerston St

Fairfield St
