Sackville Street Rooftop 21st April 2008

Filed under: High Places,Industrial & Commercial — j3bu @ 12:00 pm

A mere 250 yards from piccadilly station and a stones throw from London Road Fire Station it’s smack bang in the hustle and bustle of city centre living. It contain eight theatres, a many seminar rooms and 1200 square metres of space.

After entering the lifts, we had to select the floor by letter. Apparently the students of the university of manchester are far too intelligent to use numbers like a peasant.

Observing tremeandous views of the city.

 
 

The Arndale Shopping Complex Rooftop 9th April 2008

Filed under: High Places,Industrial & Commercial,Leisure & Other — j3bu @ 12:00 pm

Constructed between 1972 & 1979 and then partially demolished when a bomb set off by the IRA caused havoc around the city centre in 1996 causing redevelopment to be taken underway. The Manchester Arndale is a building of great engineering an architectural interest. It is a shame that none of this industrial beauty can be viewed from the ground.

The roof is a sprawling area covered in PIR sensors it’s difficult to navigate but would be a haven for freerunners. It provides splendid views of the cathedral, the wheel and many other well known manchester landmarks.
