Guide Ken Moth, of Building Design Partnership, will cover the Old Town on this walk. The walk will begin at the foot of the Lincoln Statue in Brazennose Street and proceed through the remains of elegant Georgian Manchester to the site of the medieval fortified town. The walk will visit the Cathedral which in the fifteenth century was one of the finest parish churches in the North of England. The walk will end in Chetham's Library, the English-speaking world's oldest free public library which was opened in 1653.
As always, the number of places will be restricted to 25 and allocated on a first come, first served, basis with no more than 2 members from each firm on the walk.
