This is the view at the moment from the old Exchange station car park looking towards Sacred Trinity. The church is just to the right of the red 123 sign. The river and Manchester Cathedral are to the left. This is the site of the old Victoria bus station which is going to become an exciting new public space.

They're doing the lunchtime recital today but first they're doing a concert with children from 3 local schools. Really good fun and very interesting.

Joseph Brotherton was Salford's first MP and a leading vegetarian. He was an important Victorian reformer and campaigned amongst other things for the urban masses to have access to green spaces. He was one of the movers behind the opening of Peel Park which was one of the world's first public parks. His statue was erected in the park but later on sold, moved around a bit and ended up on the wrong side of the River Irwell. For the last few years he seems to have been stranded on a rather neglected patch of river bank looking longingly at the fair city of Salford across the river. Now he's been moved home and will be part of the new river walkway between Salford Central Station and the Lowry Hotel.
