The cathedral conservation area takes its name from the Collegiate Church of Manchester Cathedral. The greater proportion of this conservation area lies within Manchester City Council's administrative boundary and contains other notable buildings such as Chetham's Hospital School, the Corn and Produce Exchange, the Mitre Hotel and Mynshull's House.
The original town at Salford was contained within the triangle of land bounded by the River Irwell, Chapel Street, Gravel Lane and Greengate, much of which is now occupied by the site of the former Exchange Station. The area has always been associated with the market centres of both Salford and Manchester until about 100 years ago when Salford Cross was still in place outside the Bulls Head. Sadly this disappeared during the rapid expansion of the town.
The inclusion of this small area of Salford within the Cathedral conservation area is important to ensure that what remains of the original town centre of Salford is protected for the future.
A map showing the boundary of the cathedral conservation area is available to download at the bottom of the page.
