About

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.

Crown Theatre Eccles

The Theatre was built in the Baroque style and its auditorium, constructed on four levels, Stalls and three Circles, supported by columns, could seat 2,500 people.

The ERA reported on the opening of the Lyceum Theatre in their 4th of March 1899 edition saying:- 'The new Lyceum Theatre at Eccles was opened to the public last Monday night. This busy Lancashire town has been too long in want of a place of amusement, or a house where entertainment of the higher class could be given, and when Mr Flanagan's intentions were known some months ago they received the warmest approval of the inhabitants.

Without doubt the theatre is one of the prettiest in the north, and possesses a stage sufficient to accommodate the most gorgeous spectacles. It is built on the latest modern plan, and from any part of the house the spectator has an uninterrupted view of the stage.
