Crane, Piccadilly Village
A crane opposite the branch of the Ashton Canal leading to the Telford Basin at Piccadilly Village.

Piccadilly Village was built alongside the Ashton Canal in Manchester city centre in the early 1990s, on the derelict site of goods wharves and a metal works known as Phoenix Works. It was originally conceived as a mixed use development containing residences, craft studios, shops, offices and a pub; however, it has evolved into a predominantly residential site.

The estate was formally opened, by Michael Heseltine, in 1991.
