Ardwick, Manchester

Ardwick is a district of the City of Manchester, in North West England, about one mile east of Manchester city centre. Historically in Lancashire, by the mid-19th century Ardwick had grown from being a village into a pleasant and wealthy suburb of Manchester, but by the end of that century it had become heavily industrialised. When its industries later fell into decline then so did Ardwick itself, becoming one of the city's most deprived areas.
