INSTAGRAM: Northern Quarter, Manchester

Day 160: Like many cities in the UK, Manchester takes its history seriously.
.
The Northern Quarter has been completely regenerated since the 1990’s but as it’s redeveloped into one Manchester’s trendiest neighbourhoods, it’s been careful to hold on to its heritage.
.
This is the facade of The Wholesale Fish Market, built by Speakman, Son & Hickson in 1873, which and stood strong for 100 years.
.
Today, it’s been incorporated into a new residential complex and stands as a reminder of the city’s vibrant past. ? #365daysoftravel #day160

Day 158: A trip south for a visit to Peanut’s favourite, Beech Road Park in Chorlton. Walking through we noticed that the trees are full of hand painted bees made by the local school.
.
The worker bee has been a symbol of Manchester for more than 150 years but has taken on added meaning since the MEN attack in 2017.
.
To quote Tony Walsh’s ‘This is the Place’, “Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home…Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester”. ?#365daysoftravel #day158

Marcus was a little mardy, and @stephylovesanegg and I may have missed the best bit going to the bar, but still – great night. What Manchester is made for. #365daysoftravel #day156

Day 154: After 2 weeks with The Fam, we’re heading back to where it all began – Manchester. Well, Salford actually. We’re staying in the neighbouring city just 5 minutes walk from Trinity Bridge, one of the newer footbridges over the River Irwell that connects Salford with Manchester. It’s nice to be ‘home’ – if only for a little while. #365daysoftravel #day154

Day 152: The Spurs side of the Thravellers family isn’t much for celebrating today. So, a morning walk to clear the cobwebs it is. We’ve seen better football – from both sides – but still, a great night for English football ??????? #365daysoftravel #day152
