Behind the Facade

Abstract

Residents have moved into New Islington, Ancoats, the unusual redevelopment of one of Manchester's most rundown estates. The new development is centred around a new canal link and water park and features uniquely designed housing. Mark Hillsdon talks to residents about their new homes and finds out how the New Islington vision became a reality.
