NORTH CITY MANCHESTER BUILDING BOOM + some intriguing relics of the industrial age

In this video we take a walk around the area to the north of Manchester city centre to look at a small building boom that’s taking place. New apartments to rent and buy stand next to old relics of the industrial revolution era. How is this part of the city changing?

At the end I refer to Manchester’s Strangeways prison and ask a question I’ve been wondering about: Are there planning laws that prevent a tall building from being constructed right next to a prison?
