Work on Gorton Monastary is gathering pace now ,with all the derelict building's surrounding it all demolished and scaffolding now starting to go up , ive started and new thread ,in which i can keep you up to date.

Had a word with one of the worker's there , he told me to come in the week , and i will be able to get some pics of the work being carried out inside ,

This is a Manchester jewel , and im really looking forward to see it being brought back to life,

Songs of Praise this evening was from Gorton Monastery

Those in the UK will be able to watch it on the BBC iPlayer - amazing how it looks now - well worth watching if you are interested in this great building.

This should be the direct link to the programme (it will expire next Sunday afternoon so only a week to watch if interested):

Used to pass this building regularly as a kid and i loved it. Great to see the effort put into restoring it to it's former splendour. Prince Charles has visited there and good on the BBC for filming there too.
