Oldham Road


Ancoats Through investigating the morphology of the area, Ancoats has changed greatly from the rural land in 1800, through the boom of the industrial revolution, and finally a decline in to modern times.

At its peak, Ancoats was known as the ‘worlds first industrial suburb’. The legacy of this period still exists today as much of the district has been turned into a conservation area, with many mills and listed buildings having withstood the test of time.

Ancoats

Setting a target population of 15,000 by 2010, many residential projects (new & refurbished) have gotten underway. This has resulted in a climbing number of communal activities, and therefore an inclement of commercial, community and public buildings.

community in need

One of the community buildings in this area, fits into a support network that stretches across Greater Manchester. The Mustard Tree and Boaz Trust charities operate from a single building on Oldham Road, and look to support the growing population minority.

These pictures summarise the evolution of Ancoats, from a thriving hub during the industrial revolution, to the increase in dwellings and community buildings that exist today.
