Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Manchester: Photo 63

world pictures The United Kingdom: Manchester

Those docks, like the docks of London, have been recycled. This is the same group of docks shown in the last picture, but now you see high-rise apartments on either side of the fuchsia Lowry Outlet Mall. You can also see a footbridge and on the other side of the Canal a lineup including the Rank Hovis mill and, to its right, the northern branch of the Imperial War Museum, with a raking roof. The dark building on the other side of Rank Hovis is Peel Properties, the company that still controls both the Canal and Trafford Park. The company sold the then-derelict docks to Salford City Council in the 1980s. Some 30 million pounds of public money went into dock rejuvenation.
