A shot of Manchester’s corn exchange (originally called the corn and produce exchange), built in1827 on an area called ‘Hanging Ditch’ it is a grade 2 listed building, located in the city centre. This is where many traders would come to do business.
In 1986 it was badly damaged by the IRA bomb. Since then the corn exchange has been restored to it’s former glory. It is now a shopping centre with designer shops and coffee bars, reflecting modern day Manchester. Located next to the corn exchange is Sinclairs oyster bar.
Manchester is located in the north west of England.
