Wednesday I went walkabout after our night's stay in Castlefield Basin. I must say I am very impressed with Manchester and how it has regenerated itself. There is evidence of many millions of pounds being spent here and the planning authorities have obviously kept a close rein on how things have been done; a pretty good amalgam of old, preserved and new.

The Museum of Science and Technology utilising one of the Campfield Market Halls. We will come back in to the City and spend some time here no doubt.
