Details

Our last trip out was lovely. The sun was out and Manchester and Salford revealed a few of their many mysteries - so we are doing it again.

Calling all ramblers, explorers and meanderers. Surveyors, cartographers and inquisitors - people who look up to the rooftops and down into the culverts. Join us for an afternoon of mapping, exploring and wandering in Central Manchester and Salford.

Often viewed as a functional place of work, retail and leisure, our city centre bounded by Trinity Way, Great Ancoats Street and the Mancunian Way is imbued with history, iniquity, celebration and endeavour. Let us go out and find what’s out there, discover the forgotten spaces, create stories and map our city.

We will propose expeditions to uncharted territories, revisits to previously explored places, strange meanderings and any other diversions that people fancy.

Adventurers will be split into parties and encouraged to map, photograph, document and bring back their findings to share with everyone.

If people want to delve deeper there should be an opportunity to do further research on the places discovered.

You will need:

Yourself

Comfortable walking shoes or what ever you need to get around

Weather appropriate clothing (hopefully sun cream rather than waterproofs!)
A phone: with a camera would be advantageous

The event is open to all, although minors need to be accompanied.

If you would like to help out on the day, let us know.
