Nos. 36 and 38 Back Turner Street represent the period of industrial activity which predates the large-scale textile factory developments in the nearby Ancoats district. They are of special interest as some of the earliest surviving industrial dwellings in the city, and are important elements of the setting of other listed buildings in the near vicinity.
