A view of the hidden parts around the inner sections around the city centre of Manchester UK and beyond. How you perceive these derelict sites could be a sort of morbid fascination, or logically analysing the modes and functionally of the remaining fragments of architecture. This blog is the stage 1 of 'Urban Exploration' but I have to emphasise, if you visit these places and tempted to gain access..I wouldnt advise it unless you seek permission from the appropriate authorities.

Park Bridge Tramway


hidden tramway tunnel near park bridge in ashton u lyne

Recent collaboration with Martin Zero, we filmed the full course of the tunnel..

Overview from https://archaeologytea.wordpress.com/

Excavations outside the entrance of the second, eastern, tunnel revealed an in situ length of iron tramway track 2ft 4in wide and 5.40m long adjacent to an area of cobbles. Most of the south half of the trench was taken up by these tramway tracks. These were represented by two parallel sets of wrought iron rails which ran west to east for 5.40m. Each line comprised two rails.  click here for more images and clips
