Best Summer Garden

Designed by Caroline Lord

Industrial Transitions illustrates what can be done with a small urban space and largely reclaimed materials.

The garden celebrates Manchester's prominence during the Industrial Revolution.

Throughout the garden there are various elements that represent different parts of Manchester's infrastructure and industrial heritage. Its canals, railways, docks and even factory floors all have features that represent them within this beautiful contemporary setting.
