23 Mar 11.  Walkabout around Manchester and Salford Quays.  Bright sun.

Edge Lane crossroads - joining two sections of tracks.

Cutting Room Square, Ancoats.  Around the square are five 'sentinels', inset with artworks by Ancoats
artist-in-residence, Dan Dubowitz, and in its centre is a sunken area for performance and play.
 The name of the square and the inspiration for the artworks comes from the rich history
of the textile industry in Ancoats - this outdoor space was where factory workers
once cut large swathes of material.

Cutting Room Square and the restored St Peter's Church.

A couple of locals in an Ancoats street.
