Where would a city be without some organised and well tended beds and gardens?- this spring display is down by Castlefield.
Castlefield conservation area is bounded by the River Irwell, Quay Street, Deansgate and the Chester Road. It was the site of the Roman era fort of Mamucium or Mancunium which gave its name to Manchester.
Castlefield was designated as a conservation area in 1980 and the United Kingdom's first designated Urban Heritage Park in 1982.
