john dalton and the manc way

 

Opened in 1967 by Prime Minister Harold Wilson, the Mancunian Way passes close by the John Dalton Building. You can catch a glimpse of JD here at about 42 seconds into the clip.

Reputed to be the UK’s shortest motorway, the Mancunian Way was awarded the Concrete Society Award in 1968 and it has a lovely concrete plaque to prove it.

Harold Wilson’s plaque however, is not doing too well…
