graffiti Great Ancoats Street Manchester

graffiti Great Ancoats Street Manchester

In the wide and empty the Central Retail Park. Once home to a great Toys R Us, it's basically a hole in the middle of the city

Skaters who say they have been forced out of Manchester city centre have taken matters into their own hands — by building their own park in Ancoats.

The DIY facility is built on the former Central Retail Park and is nicknamed Goose Side — after a family of goslings were found which the skaters cared for. Since starting up three months ago, the community has installed ramps, banks, and obstacles to use.

Driven out of places such as Lincoln Square and Cathedral Gardens by a city centre ban, the boarders have spent the last three months building ramps, banks and obstacles on the old retail park. It feels like exactly the kind of grassroots, DIY movement a young, forward-looking city like ours should be encouraging

Wellington Mill Street Art Jam Manchester

Wellington Mill Street Art Jam

Wellington Mills - Pollard Street

Wellington Mill Ancoats, Manchester

Many, if not most, of Manchester's former textile mills have been converted into apartment buildings but the Wellington Mill and its neighbour, the Brunswick Mill, across the Ashton Canal, struggle on as homes to a collection of small businesses

Among those who have the Wellington Mill, or as it is also referred to Wellington House, as their address are: The Greenhouse Rehearsal Studios, Flying Carpets Limited, Fish Fry, Castle Garments and Eklectika Enterprises.  As you can see an eclectic collection of businesses.
