    Optimus Prime, Manchester - Nov 2013

    Visited firstly with Ojay, bumping into GAJ and Keïteï, fishbrain and a Russian bloke, Good to meet you all. Having not seen much upstream, on the first visit, I was invited back, this time with FreshFingers and again, with Ojay. Thanks to everyone for making it great.

    The area used to look very different.

    Top work Nick. It's like a time capsule in there. The additions and alterations over the many decades are totally fascinating! Superior civil engineering for the time. Thanks for the invite boys :thumb
