Wow that's like Brum's Frankfurt market, but much smaller and less busy.

I'm surprised/ disappointed that Urban Splash have left the concrete lift shaft tops on the ex councils houses. Really gives them away! I don't think they plan to do anything about them but if they had any sense they'd make a roof garden for the tenants, like every other tower block in London. Or just paint over the grime.
If you go back now, you will see the top has been done also.

It's cool. You can get tables and TV stands and stuff made from reclaimed mill joists in there. I've got a few bits n pieces. It's on the left hand side as you're leaving town between Levenshulme and Heaton Chapel.
