Save Angel Meadow and the Lowry Steps

A current planning application is seeking to remove historic features around Angel Meadow and St. Michael's Flags, features that are a vital part of our city's heritage.

We know that this Labour Council has already approved several 20-storey buildings that will eventually overshadow the park. But now they want to rip up the steps that Lowry painted, the cobbled streets that the matchstick men and women walked on, and tear down the foundations of buildings that are a testament to our shared industrial heritage.

Full impact:

  • Removal of the Lowry Steps (The Steps, Irk Place, 1928 see below)
  • Build new moderns steps which are inaccessible for disabled visitors
  • Remove the foundations of St. Michael's Hall which were preserved with Lottery funding
  • Demolition of boundary walls from 1888
  • Removal of trees, bushes, and shrubs at the Gould St. entrance
  • Tearing up exsiting cobble setts forming the historic Aspin Lane (around 1840s)

The full details and images of the proposals are here https://www.facebook.com/groups/angelmeadow/permalink/10156013469345938/ As well as signing this petition make sure you join the Friends of Angel Meadow and get involed in their activites to support this wonderful park.
