    Very interested to see the results of this project and so happy to be its subject – as one of the trustees of the Manchester Buddhist Centre (Triratna Buddhist Order), an unlisted Victorian cotton warehouse of great interest in Manchester’s city centre, with *enormous* maintenance costs. Come and see us! A local industrial archaeologist said we were a fascinating relic of the city’s industrial past in being so relatively unmodernised. Original features clearly visible.
