INTERIORS: Not inspected.
A pair of industrial buildings of early and late C19 representing the workshop and warehousing components of a surviving enclave of small-scale buildings which developed from the late C18, alongside dwellings with integral workshops in attics and cellars. They contrast in scale and form with the large scale factories and warehouses of surrounding districts, and are now rare survivals of an important phase in the development of industrial Manchester.
