    Im sure u folks here all heard of Victoria/Cathedral Arches and if not there is plenty to read bout it in few books like Below Manchester (my favourite) full historical report with who occupied the place before + some nice old old pics :thumb

    This is one of most fascinating things i done so far and im really glad that I done it as my first report. Especialy cos ppl say that this is the "Holy Grail of Manchester". Each time i hear things like that it reminds me of how much I love this city.

    Well here are the pics and hope u like them as much as i had fun doing this first official Urbex:
