Archaeology at MeadowSide

Since archaeological work commenced at MeadowSide Plots 2, 3 and 5 (The Gate, The Stile and The Mount Yard) we have been speaking to Dr Rob Smith, Director and co-founder of Orion Heritage who is responsible for overseeing the excavation. We put a few questions to him to find out more about the work of an archaeologist and the past of our new MeadowSide homes.

The strangest sculpture in Manchester, great views, astonishing history and a scramble up the stones that built the city are on offer at the walking tours of Angel Meadow and beyond that MeadowSide is sponsoring this summer.

Cottonopolis Bee For FEC

We are sponsoring a 3D bee, inspired by Manchester’s industrial heritage, as part of an art trail around the city this summer. Named Cottonopolis, the 1.5 metres high, 3D bee construction, is being designed and painted by York-based artist, Leah Pendleton, who has drawn inspiration from Manchester’s role in the industrial revolution as home to fabric production.
