The Umbrella Factory on Shudehill :: Shared Description

This area of Manchester was dominated by the Smithfield Markets during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. At that time, several warehouses and small factories were also established close to the market. One of these factories survives on Shudehill, where William Stovell established his umbrella and walking stick factory and shop. Built in phases between 1900 and 1915, it was designed for Stovell by Thomas Horsfield and is particularly notable for its distinctive rear elevation that steps back, floor by floor providing top lighting to help illuminate the interior workshops. It is now being converted into residential apartments.
