SD8700 : Newton Heath Depot, Newton Heath, Manchester

taken 13 years ago, near to Harpurhey, Manchester, Great Britain

Newton Heath Depot, Newton Heath, Manchester
Newton Heath Depot, Newton Heath, Manchester
This depot started life in the 19th century with the arrival of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway to the town. The Rochdale canal and the railway provided the impetus to change Newton Heath (the new town on the heath) from an agricultural to industrial community, with soap making, rope making, glass making, match making (as in Lucifers, not dating!!) and varied engineering factories. Newton Heath is also the place where Manchester United Football Club started life in 1879 as Newton Heath F.C., before moving ground and changing name in 1902. SD872007
