The two viaducts carrying the metrolink and Manchester to Liverpool line run parrell to each other before joining further down the track

Description

Beneath the viaducts used by the Metrolink and Manchester - Liverpool Railway sit Hulme Hall Arches. Several of these arches have been previously used for storage or parking, however, a number still remain vacant and sit overlooking Manchester and the Ship Canal and provides one of the most unique areas to film in Manchester.

In addition to providing a distinctive filming area, a selection of these arches can be used as a unit base if filming in Manchester's city centre.

The arches are located on St Georges Island located a short walk from Manchester City Centre. Deansgate Station is half a mile away and Chester Road (A56) one of Manchesters main arterial routes is than 500 metres from the site.

Restrictions

  • The railway lines going above the arches are still active and  a certain amount of background noise must be expected.
  • Access to the site is through a residential area and procedures need to be put in place to ensure minimum disruption to the population.

Accessibility

Quality of access varies within  the arches.
