I enjoyed looking through the thread, some good pics of a great city. I'm hoping i'll be here at Uni next year(fingers crossed!), really looking forward to exploring the city.

Here are a few i took of Manchester a couple of month ago.

Urbis

Isn't the Urbis a magnificent building! A real architectural success for modern Manchester.

I remember sitting in a car on the very land where it now stands, in a non descript bit of flattened (pot-holed) land that was a public car park. Eating cereal from a polystyrene cup with my parents at 8 a.m waiting for Marks & Sparks to open, my Mum's idea being that we would get some sort of strategic advantage having cereal when we arrived rather than before we set off, by missing traffic or something- Was that just me then haha!

The Urbis!

Clayton Vale/Philips Park

I went for a (admittedly pointless) walk earlier today down Clayton Vale, heading into Philips Park and took a few snaps. Please excuse the general incompetence of the photography; these were very-much a first attempt. It's amazing how much work is being carried out down this area of the medlock valley; new drainage, pathways, furniture, forest management, etc. I particularly like the way they've turned the River Medlock into a what looks like a water slide in Philips Park by creating a brick-lined chute for it to flow down. It's quite eerie watching this fast-flowing river drift by in virtual silence (unfortunately the batteries in the camera died before I could get a shot). I'm taking an inflatable rubber ring next time...

River Medlock:

Flats in Newton Heath overlooking the Vale:

...and a bit of proper 'grit': the fencing that's supposed to stop you getting on top of the railway arches as they go over Bank Street and carry on behind the Velodrome (where they abruptly end before reaching Ashton new Road):

From Philips Park, a view of the B of the Bang nestled between the velodrome and the new flats opposite:

Another shot of Philips Park with town in the background:

And thus concludes my Clayton odyssey!

wow. it looked a fair bit different then, think the inmates burnt the place down in 1990ish and most of it was rebuilt and renamed HMP prison manchester instead of strangeways prison or something like that.
there's a bit more about the tower here - http://www.skyscrapernews.com/buildings.php?id=2845
oh just noticed,

It is one of the few remaining parts of the original building, much of which was destroyed during the infamous Strangeways prison riots in April 1990.
