    First of all a warning. This place is wrecked and full of graffiti. But i believe that it played an important role in manchesters' history hence why i post up this report.

    Markets played an important role in mancherter's history. In its best time most of the now called northern quarter used to be part of the big market. Although most stands were outside, some dealings also happened in the few market halls. Most of these halls have now disappeared from manchesters face. When walking through the northern quarter you can still see a few of the old walls that have been integrated into new apartment blocks.
    Smithfield market hall seems to be one of the few halls still standing. It was only boarded up recently but sadly there had been a lot of vandalism inside it.

    Here some of my pictures. As you will see there is a lot of graffiti. The atmosphere in this place was just amazing. Although i am not a fan of graffiti, the colours of the walls matched very well to the once colourful market hall. Enjoy.
