Chimney at former Boddingtons brewery Manchester

The chimney is all that remains of Boddingtons Brewery which stood at the junction of Great Ducie Street and New Bridge Street (the A56 and A6042 Inner Relief Route). Today the site is a car park but the chimney still stands. It is one of only a few chimneys left in Manchester.

Once there were scores of chimneys like this in Manchester, pouring smoke from the factories into the atmosphere. Inscribed into the brickwork of the chimney are the words 'August 1888'. About half wya up the chimney, there is a poster for Ask Developments. The car park offers parking for 3 a day.
