Manchester Eastlands Helena St gas holder derelict wall and gate

One of the two gas holders at Holt Town in the Eastlands area of Manchester can be seen above a derelict and delapidated wall and gate on Upper Helena Street, near the junction with Upper Cyrus St.


The east of Manchester, once the workshop of the city, is undergoing widespread redevelopment, but pockets of dereliction survive, as here. I find derelict walls and buildings fascinating pictorial subjects.
