This is the forgotten end of Ancoats, with its strange Londonesque name, once home to the Royal Ruby Cycle Company, which made bikes for the Russian Tsar; filthily industrially Holt Town; and infamous Every Street, the thoroughfare that launched a thousand bad music hall jokes. That’s where the socialist graveyard with a safety tomb could be found, next to the Roundhouse Settlement, painted by Lowry, with its Henry Hunt of Peterloo Memorial, and grand Ancoats Hall where Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed.
