The building on the left on Stamford Street Central (formerly Kenworthy's Jewellers) collapsed on 27th March 2014. Read the Manchester Evening News report: LinkExternal link The collapse was captured on video by Vanessa Dixon and can be viewed on YouTube LinkExternal link

A blue plaque mounted on the front of the building marked the fact it was once home to poet Francis Thompson LinkExternal link who lived there between 1864 and 1885.

The building has since been shored up and the upper storey rebuilt. It now carries a date stone reading "S.G.B. 2004".

The lower storey is still undergoing rebuilding. The empty shop on the right is also being restored and refitted.
