Clockworks: Two cranes, as reported :cheers:

There are x2 past Hulme Asda on the left hand side coming out the city. Not sure if they've been counted or actually even qualify?

Circle Square on this grey morning

So many cranes on one site!
Mobile crane setting up at Weavers Quay, assuming it will be bringing down the last crane.

Still two cranes at Adelphi Wharf.
Have the Adelphi Wharf cranes gone? I am sure I saw a pic of it on insta and there were none there.

Blimey, crane base in place already. Plus the bulk excavation is well on the way. :)







A crane has come down at Adelphi Wharf this morning. Just one remaining there now.
And the final crane at Adelphi Wharf is coming down today.

Noted, thanks chaps
Red crane base at Excelsior Mill near Cornbrook, so expect one here soon!
I was in Leeds city centre yesterday; you get a good view of it when you approach from the M621 and it was really noticeable how few cranes are there compared with the forest of the things that covers Manchester. I think they're on the grand total of 13. Poor Leeds :lol:

For comparison here's a shot of just one part of Manchester city centre last week... :cheers:
