The Greater Manchester Photo Thread

I think it would be nice to have a general photo thread for Manchester, I know we had a 'random' photo thread previously but let's have a dedicated 'splendid' photo thread. Post them in here please, they'll all be welcome ...as long as they aren't photos of tarts and sausages. (Yes I know I just opened the floodgates).

I'll look through the thread periodically to take out the banter so don't please be offended if your stumpy fingers composed a masterpiece at 3am one night... and it went missing.

Please try to post only your own work folks...

Castlefield Basin, dusk



Ok, maybe splendid is pushing it a bit, but it's better than the view in the other direction.

How did you take that? I didn't think there were any windows on that side.

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.
