Saint George's Island
Two of the apartments in the St George’s Island development at Castlefield.

The St George Island apartments sit on a promontory of land close to where the Hulme Locks Junction Canal once formed an important connection between the Bridgewater Canal and the River Irwell / Manchester Ship Canal. The complex includes 5 apartment buildings set within almost two acres of land between the Railway Viaduct and the canal. A footbridge and a road bridge (Hulme Hall Road, from where this photograph was taken) provide access onto the site. LinkExternal link - Manchester History Net
