Produced by Stardotstar for Marketing Manchester (2008), hearmanchester.com is a series of audio guides to Manchester with everything from the GREEN to the POETIC.

Suitable for key stage 2 and beyond, we like the INDUSTRIAL Mp3 audio (with Pdf), which delves into Manchester’s industrial heritage, including Rochdale Canal and then comes right up-to-date with modern industrial Manchester. There’s even a map so you can take a walk to discover Manchester’s past.

More from museums, libraries and archives

You can find online photos of industrial Manchester, for example of the cotton industry mentioned in INDUSTRIAL, in Manchester Archives and Local Studies Libraries.

Explore more of Manchester’s industrial heritage online with MOSI, Museum of Science and Industry.
