Castlefield Viaduct is being transformed into a ‘garden in the sky’ for visitors to explore and enjoy. Castlefield Viaduct has worked with a selection of local groups to plant a range of areas on the viaduct and embrace the natural beauty of the area. As well as a series of seasonal gardens, a section of the viaduct has been left open so that visitors can view the reclamation process in action. With fantastic views over Manchester, the viaduct is the ideal place to take some time to relax and immerse yourself in nature’s own mission of reclamation. Visitors can also explore the Secret Garden full of dense foliage and bright colours. A merger of industry and natural beauty, the Castlefield Viaduct takes advantage of native species whilst showcasing Manchester’s proud industrial history.
