"The Victoria Arches were a series of arches built in the embankment of the River Irwell in Manchester. They served as business premises, landing stages for Steam packet riverboats, and also as World War II air-raid shelters. They were accessed from wooden staircases which descended from Victoria Street.
Regular flooding of the river resulted in the closure of the steam-packet services in the early 20th century, and the arches were used for general storage. In World War II the arches were converted for use as air raid shelters. The arches are now bricked up and inaccessible; the staircases were removed in the latter part of the 20th century."​

The Trip​
Visted with Anoxia, Spook, Ibex, Neon Nine and Nocturnal Martin

With already having 2 sucessfull explores in the day over on the other side of the North West, we headed over to Manchester to meet up with Spook, Ibex and Nocturnal Martin.

Ive been wanting to see this place for many years since i saw the original reports, many moon's ago, an eventful trip as usual.​

I took a slightly different approach with the photo's, as i do alot of light painting, i though it would be rude not to do it in here,so hope you all don't mind! With them all consisting of light painting, there isn't man images so sorry for the lack of them!
