A view from "Cloud 23", the bar on the 23rd floor of the Beetham tower (Hilton Hotel SJ8397 : Beetham Tower). This view is looking towards the west. The main feature in the foreground is the railway system of three viaducts near to the site of the Roman fort at Castlefield and, beyond them, the Castlefield canal basin. The tall buildings near the horizon are at Salford Quays and MediaCityUK.
