Castlefield locks, that's an ace bridge just along the way there. If you stand underneath it, it's, well impressive.

What does Manchester have to answer for? seems a bit harsh?

He's right y'know Salome; Urbis, no 1 Deansgate, Beetham Tower, the B of the blimmin' Bang, the Corn Exchange redevelopment, the shameful extrusion on the site of the Cross Street Unitarian Chapel, the loss of Meng & Ecker's Tearooms (a sad, sad loss to comics fans & followers of print media indecency trials alike) I could go on... Dash it all, I'm told they hardly ever even use the Order of Common Prayer in St Anne's Church anymore! What's the place coming to eh, eh? The Hacienda's a bunch of tacky flats & Tony Wilson seems headed for municipal beatitude...

H, that's a hell of a lot of googling for me to understand what you are saying.

But it looks so peaceful and liveable.

I'm so glad to hear you ranting about the gentrification of manchester, hildegard. similar crimes have been committed in edinburgh the last few years, not least the closure of the city's best-ever music venue to make way for apartments.

Ahem, yes, I was very, very fond of M'cr, can't say that with a straight face anymore.
Agree about some of the Edinburgh stuff. Have often thought Ian Rankin ought to write another, darker, planning-related novel...

Salome says:

I remember the redevelopment of the Hacienda. I hadn't been down for a couple of years and the train came in over the top of a big banner on the old Hac saying "The party's over, now you can come home".
Apart from that, I'd forgive Manchester anything, I think.
