Neoclassical, Manchester

The story behind this place; the Royal Exchange, Manchester – for me starts 60 odd miles away sat at the top of a windy mountain. Five or six years ago we’d jump in the back of a minibus, fill ourselves with energy drinks, take the piss out of one another before walking up the aforementioned ‘windy mountain’. The mountain in question was Moel Famau or ‘Bull Ramer’ that we had convinced our dim friend, what currently sits at the top is the Jubilee Tower designed by Thomas Harrison – the original pencil pusher behind the Royal Exchange. Sitting up there eating my squashed food I would have never of guessed that a few years on I’d be sat a fair few metres above the city of Manchester and it’s people holding onto another of Harrison’s designs.
