Great Northern Warehouse, Watson Street, Manchester
A truly monumental structure (267ft by 217ft) of blue and red brick, wrought-iron girders and steel stanchions, built to withstand a load of 650 tons each. It opened in 1898, planned by A. Ross of the Great Northern Railway, consulting engineer W.T. Foxlee. Grade II* listed.
The listing says it is a "unique survival of a 3-way railway goods exchange station, serving the railway, canal and road networks of the Manchester region". In 2000-02 it was converted into a shopping and leisure centre, in the process of which parts were removed.
