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.

Queens Park Gatehouse

Queens Park is located at the junction of Queens Road and Rochdale Road in Harpurhey.


It was one of the first parks in Manchester opened on the same day in 1846 as Phillips Park.  It is part of a green corridor leading out of the city centre along the River Irk.  The land originally belonged to the Houghton Family.  They built Hendham Hall on the site in 1800.  In 1845 the park was designed and laid out by Joshua Major and purchased by Manchester Corporation for £7,200 in 1846.  The segment of the Adshead Map below shows the park in 1851.
