Ancoats to New IslingtonIn the 18th and 19th centuries Ancoats developed into ‘the World’s first industrial suburb,’ with housing and cotton mills cheek by jowl – an ‘industrial powerhouse’. For much of the last century this 50 acre site was in sorry decline, however nowadays it has been designated an ‘urban village’ and we see how, once again, this area will be a vibrant and dynamic centre for new ways of living, working and leisure in the 21st century.Be amazed by exciting experiments in housing – an apartment block shaped like a plate of chips? Houses in an Argyll sweater design? Discover an apple orchard in the centre of Manchester!
The tour is held in simplified German with English summaries when neccessary.
