Today we went to the top of the new multi-storey car park at New Bailey. The weather this morning was gorgeous but this afternoon we had miserable drenching rain so we didn’t enjoy the views for too long!
John Rylands Library is on Deansgate in Manchester. Their website is here: http://www.library.manchester.ac.uk/rylands/
For some of our group it was the first time they’d been and everyone thought it was beautiful and worth visiting again. A real jewel that we so often walk past but need to go in!

Involved is a community project based in Broughton and headed up by Dave Fraser. One aspect of the work they are developing is a furniture project where they take rejected furniture and do it up. For this they are using old industrial premises on East Philip Street with the Biospheric Project based above them.
What a fantastic place, I’ve wandered past here many times and never knew…
