We explore the backstreets and forgotten corners of Ancoats, the world’s first industrial suburb.

This inner-city area just east of Manchester city centre was converted from market gardens and fields into a land of mills blackened with soot with frightening ferocity at the end of the 18th century.

Many of the downtrodden workforce were Irish, imported because they could be paid less than the locals, and they were joined by Italians fleeing il risorgimento to bring ice cream to the begrimed city in the 19th century.

Ancoats was abandoned by the council with forcible depopulating in the mid-20th century but it is now being imaginatively revived as essential 21st century Manchester with new flats, businesses and a bustling marina.
