Memorial Hall, Albert Square, Manchester
Memorial Hall, Albert Square, Manchester
A most distinguished building with an attractive mix of red brick and stone, and a variety of Venetian Gothic details, most notably the quatrefoil tracery in the top tier of windows. It was built in 1863-66 to the designs of Thomas Worthington. Grade II* listed.
The listing observes that it was "erected to commemorate the 2,000 nonconformist clergy who seceded from the Church of England in 1662 as a result of the Act of Uniformity." When a student in 1985-88 it hosted a pub called the Square Albert. I think its current occupant, MMA, is the Manchester Model Agency.
