Jackson's Warehouse, Vantage Quay
Originally called the Rochdale Canal Warehouse, Jackson's Warehouse was built in 1836 on a small arm from the Rochdale Canal in central Manchester. Like other warehouses in central Manchester, it features 'shipping holes' at canal level on its main elevation. These allowed direct access into the building so that canal boats could unload under cover.

Jackson’s Warehouse is a Grade II* listed building (Historic England List Entry Number: 1254689 LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . In 2003, it was converted into residential accommodation and a restaurant (LinkExternal link Engineering Timelines). A photograph at The Manchester Local Image Collection LinkExternal link shows it still in use as a warehouse as late as 1961.
Rochdale Canal

The Rochdale Canal runs for 33 miles between Manchester and Sowerby Bridge in West Yorkshire, UK. In Sowerby Bridge it connects with the Calder and Hebble Navigation. In Manchester it connects with the Ashton and Bridgewater Canals.

The canal was opened between Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden and from Manchester to Rochdale in 1799 and between Todmorden and Rochdale in 1805. Most of the canal was closed in 1952. Restoration work began in late 1980s and by 1996 the canal was opened to navigation once again between Sowerby Bridge and the summit level. The canal was re-opened to navigation along its entire length in July 2002 and forms part of the South Pennine Ring.
