Whitworth Art Gallery
The gallery was founded in 1889 as “The Whitworth Institute and Park” by Robert Dukinfield Darbishire with a donation from Sir Joseph Whitworth. The gallery was built between 1895 and 1900 in a free Jacobean style to the designs of JW Beaumont. It became part of the University of Manchester in 1958.

The two-storey building is constructed of red brick with bands and dressings of matching terracotta and has green slate roofs. Its nine-bay main range has two towers and a large projecting semi-circular porch with a screen of paired stone Ionic columns and a stone frieze below a balustraded parapet. It is a Grade II Listed Building (Historic England List entry Number: 1246569 LinkExternal link ).
