5 December 14 Another visit to the new sculpture in Beswick then a walk through Ancoats. Mostly sunny.
'Dad's Halo Effect' by Ryan Gander. Also see here.
Behind is the new Connell Sixth Form College building.
Poster near the sculpture.
Cotton Field Park, Ancoats. Behind is the Murray's Mills complex.
Built between 1797 and 1804, they are amongst the world's earliest steam-
powered cotton spinning factories and once employed over 1200 people.
The Rochdale Canal with the new footbridge back in place after repairs.
Still not open to the public though - this could be why.
New school to open here in 2014.
