Great Bridgewater Street

Looking down Great Bridgewater Street. Beyond the viaduct carrying the metrolink trams from St Peter's Square to Deansgate/Castlefield is the Beetham Tower (Hilton Hotel). On the right in front of Manchester Central is the Tower of Light.

Called the "Tower of Light", the tall, white structure is the chimney for a new energy project - the Civic Quarter Heat Network - which will power a number of prominent buildings including Central Library, the Bridgewater Hall, Heron House and the Manchester Art Gallery, by sending electricity and heat - via hot water - through two kilometres of underground pipes.
