    Barton Arcade

    Barton Arcade was built in 1871. The arcade was extensively restored in the 1980s and now houses shops and a number of office suites. The original shop fronts have disappeared, as has the original decorative tiled floor.

    We'd heard about this place before, and whilst on a wander around Manchester we decided that we may as well have a look. Access wasn't instantly obvious but we got there soon enough :D

    There was a big lot of fans & ventilation pipes up there, we had a game of spit roulette with one of them...let's just say it didn't end too well for some of us

    It seems I have some sort of mental block that stops me remembering to bring a tripod along whenever I go out, you may have noticed the same in my last few reports.
    Hope you enjoyed :thumb
