Description

Victorian Slums & Squalor

Explore Angel Meadow

Angel Meadow and the Irk Valley were infamous in Victorian times - cholera, crime, vice, vermin and death were an everyday occurrence.

Angel Meadow Park

Huge wealth was created in Manchester during the Industrial Revolution but the steam-powered factory system also resulted in thousands of workers living cheek by jowl in slums and cellars, on next to nothing.

Guiding in Angel Meadow


We'll visit Scotland and Gibralter, cross the River Irk to see various locations that L S Lowry painted, stand in the very place where an England world cup medal winner played football as a boy with thousands of dead bodies under his feet and wander the narrow streets once known as Irish Town.


Castlefield Lock 92


We finish the walk on Rochdale Road near a fantastic pub, The Marble Arch.
