Old Trafford, Trafford Park and The Quays MP3 Audio Trail

Did you know that Lancashire County Cricket Club started off life as The Aurora Club over the ship canal in Salford, or that on the site of White City Retail Park there once stood magnificent Botanical Gardens, what is The Manchester Madonna?

Download our MP3 audio trail and listen to the fascinating story of an area well known to the world for football and cricket but which has another story to tell, from rolling country estate to industrial powerhouse. The trail could take anything from an hour and a half upwards depending how long you linger at the audio points or attractions on route, or if you take time out for something to eat and drink. Hard copy large print text only versions are available from Trafford Tourist Information Centre on Stamford New Road telephone (0161) 912 4502 or email
