    History taken from Wikipedia;

    'The Cathedral Steps were wooden staircases that descended from street level on Victoria Street in Manchester, to arched brick landing stages built into the embankment of the River Irwell, and finally to floating moored platforms. The purpose of the steps was to allow fare-paying passengers access to Steam packet riverboats which provided tours of the River and also travel to other towns in the area, including Barton, Lymm, and Liverpool. The steps were so named due to their close proximity to Manchester Cathedral'

    'In 1935 less elaborate steps were in place, and some of them remained until 1971.In photographs taken in 1972, the arches are seen to be barred, some covered with metal grilles. As of 2007, none of the steps remain, and the original Victorian railings along the embankment have been replaced with a stone wall and new railings.
    The arches are now bricked up with small ventilation apertures left in place'
