Barton Arcade is located on Deansgate, Manchester and was built in 1871, by Corbett, Raby & Sawyer. It is a beautiful Victorian structure of iron and glass with three tiers of balconies with ornamental balustrades curving around the U-shaped arcade.
It is a gorgeous glass and iron shopping arcade with two octagonal domes rising from glass pendentives, probably the best example of this type of cast-iron and glass-roofed arcade anywhere in the country.
The original ironwork came from Macfarlane’s foundry in Glasgow.
Barton Arcade is a grade 2 listed historic building.
