Thanks for that, particularly interested in the Lancaster Arcade photo as it said there were 19century shops,  would love to have seen them. :smitten:

We had a thread on a few years ago,  wasn't there a cheese making place there?

Apparently it's nickname was "Cheese Alley" :)


The arcade was situated across the way from Manchester Victoria Railway Station, between Todd Street and Fennel Street.


The classically-structured arcade was once a hidden gem, comprising of three tiered rows of shops, which included Olwen’s Stamp and Coin Centre, B.&M. Baker raincoat and casual wear manufacturers, Jim Murray trouser makers, along with Irwin Bros manufacturing jewellers and bullion dealers, to name just a few.




And while it served its purpose for the people of the city at the time, it eventually began to see customer numbers and footfall drop, leading to its permanent closure and demolition in the mid-70s.






Luft, M. / Manchester Libraries
Nowadays, the National Football Museum in the Urbis Building stands in its place.


If the name Lancaster Avenue isn’t particularly ringing any bells for you though, that might be because you’re more familiar with its nickname.


While the arcade has now long been demolished and is considered to be a thing of the past by many, the abandoned cellars and tunnels that run underneath the city still remain, and have become a particular point of interest for so-called urban explorers. In this case, Beneath New Cathedral Street – which is now home to the Harvey Nichols department store – are cellars and passages that date back centuries, including one that served as a skittles gallery and shooting range, which then later became a cheese store.


This is why Lancaster Avenue was dubbed ‘Cheese Alley’ by locals.


If you make your way through Manchester city centre today though, only one of these Victorian-era shopping arcades still stands – Barton Arcade, which is tucked away adjoining St Ann’s Square and Deansgate.


It houses a number of independent retailers and food outlets on the ground floor level, with the upper tiers being the base for several offices and businesses, but most-importantly though, it serves the purpose of representing the shopping arcade culture that once was.


Gone, but never forgotten.

The road between Victoria station and the corner of Todd Street,  was it the continuation of Long Millgate on the opposite side of the road where Chethams School of Music was?

Fears raised more than 500 children in Greater Manchester town were being sexually abused last year


https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/fears-raised-more-500-children-27701295


'Oldham's director of children's services Gerard Jones told the M.E.N/LDRS he does not believe there is evidence demonstrating 'mass' grooming gangs are operating in Oldham


 I guess it must be a coincidence then  ::)
