Victoria Arches, Manchester

Explored with Ojay, Ninjaboy, ViralEye, Kenni, Nickindroy and Stopford Lad

This has long been on my list of shit to see, and after missing the tourist entrance when the recent-ish construction project finished it seems like I'm one of the few people who hasn't seen it yet. Big thanks to Ojay and Ninjaboy for the invite and the help.

Wikipedia said:
The Victoria Arches are a series of bricked-up arches built in an embankment of the River Irwell in Manchester. They served as business premises, landing stages for Steam packet riverboats and as Second World War air-raid shelters. They were accessed from wooden staircases that descended from Victoria Street.

Regular flooding resulted in the closure of the steam-packet services in the early 20th century, and the arches were later used for general storage. Following the outbreak of the Second World War they were converted into air raid shelters. They are now bricked up and inaccessible, the staircases having been removed in the latter part of the 20th century.
