Photographer's Note

A trip to Gloucester Docks takes you back to time past.

A trip to the docks in Manchester on the other hand is a glimpse into the future.

Developed as the port of the Manchester Ship Canal, the docks at Salford numbered 6-10. Further along the canal at Trafford were the docks 1-5.

Salford Quays is a modern redevelopment of the docks 6-9.

Media City
is built on the area where dock 10 was planned. It is a development for media enterprises, bringing together many, many aspects of the industry. It is to here that BBC have relocated much of their London based operation.

On other parts of the quays are the Lowry Arts Centre, Imperial War Museum North, a large outlet shopping mall and residential development too. Old Trafford Football ground is only a short walk, as is Lancashire County Cricket Club.
