Event description
Explore Castlefield: Roman Manchester, birthplace of industry, and setting for the country's first canal and world's first railway.

About this event

Castlefield is not only the Roman birthplace of Manchester, it was also the industrial birthplace of the city in the 18th century, and one of the most important historical sites in the world as it is the home of the world’s oldest railway station and Britain’s first canal.

The lesser known history is also eye-opening. Here can be found Manchester’s last authentic Roman relic (below), a surviving Victorian hut from where people could emigrate to America, stupendous railway viaducts, secluded waterways, quaint cobbles, the most sprawling of museums and a graveyard full of surprises. We will also summon up the spirit of Betty’s hot pot at the site of the Rovers Return.
