Yesterday was a blustery damp mix of drizzle, fog and downpour through which I walked to and from the Trafford Centre, a total distance of approximately 5k. Despite the weather it was a pleasant walk.
Crossed this waterway with its typical Mancunian brick service building and the Barton Swing Aqueduct. I saw charming little footpaths which, had it not been raining, I might have explored.
This was all in deep contrast to what eventually emerged on my horizon; an immense, gaudy, domed, sprawling complex in the style of faux sophistication found in Las Vegas; The Trafford Centre.
