Gorton is a bit, well, industrial, and run down, but it does boast of one of the most beautiful (former) churches in the country; a world heritage site no less – Gorton Monastery.

We meet there (in the Friars’ Pantry) for a breathtaking tour of a breathtaking building, followed by a short step across the eerie streets outside, taking in stories of industrial imperialism and post-war dereliction, returning for a bite of soul food.

The tour is led by Ed Glinert, one of the monastery’s official guides and joint founder of New Manchester Walks.

Please book with the Monastery, via 223 3211.
