HOME: Around & About Walking tour
HOME is Manchester’s newest arts venue and the area around 1st Street is a new trendy venue for Mancunians. Find out about this building and how it has grown from the old Gaythorn Gasworks. Just around the corner is Little Ireland and some of the earliest cotton mills in the world, owned variously by conservative and liberal entrepreneurs. How did their treatment of their workers differ with their beliefs?
Underlying all the history and the modern developments is the River Medlock, mostly hidden now but visible if you know where to look.
