Walking piece details
Part of the Walk This Play series by ThickSkin, commissioned by Step Up MCR. Featuring stories and voices from the communities of Ancoats, Clayton, Beswick & Openshaw.
Celebrating the monuments big and small, the people that built the buildings from the ground up and that keep the beating heart of the area alive.
I am cobbles. I am red brick and stone. I am cotton mills. I am the water racing through the canals, connecting Manchester to the rest of the world. I am communities that care. Looking for a connection.
Monuments guides you around the Ancoats cobbles, old and new, asking you not to overlook the buildings and the communities that make the area unique.
