Radcliffe Tower

So I finally got a chance to go and see Radcliffe Tower. Radcliffe Tower is a tower (or what remains of it) in Radcliffe, a small town near Manchester. I have posted some shots of Radcliffe before, though that was a bleak November scenery.

I couldn’t get any nearer, the tower is surrounded by a fence.

I don’t know whether it’s available to public at all, ever, I haven’t been able to find out any info about any trail, as mentioned on this notice board, or anything else. I would really like to photograph the tower closer.

Anyone reading this who is from this neighbourhood? Anyone out there knows this place or perhaps been to this Trail and can give more details? Tell us in the comments!

Beetham Tower, Manchester

Located on Deansgate, it’s the tallest building in Manchester. (169 m.)

At least at the time of the writing. You never know when this might change with all this construction going on in this city–so that it doesn’t look like I’m spreading some fake news here.

It is still fairly new, only completed in 2006. Apparently it divides opinions, but I like it. I think it’s cool to have an iconic skyscraper in the city. Thin and sleek, reminds me of today’s tech gadgets.

The view from the top floor must be something to kill for!

The old and the new:

This blog needs more of Manchester red brick architecture, methinks.
