A Salford street
I spent several hours researching a forthcoming Superlative Walk around Salford. This included the original Coronation Street, at one end of which is a very famous location, from a Smiths' album cover.
Other places visited included the Salford University Campus, on which is the Salford Museum and Art Gallery which, when it opened in 1850, was the world's first free public library. Ordsall Hall, a well-preserved building, originally built 750 years ago but now dating back no further than the 15th century, is reputedly the place where Guy Fawkes and his colleagues formulated the Gunpowder Plot to blow-up Parliament. Topical?
The route concludes with a colourful path along the River Irwell.
