St Michael’s Flags and Angel Meadow Park, Old Mount St, Manchester, M4 4TF – Visit Now

Angel Meadow has a dark history, and during the Industrial Revolution was Manchester’s filthiest and most violent slum, complete with its own gangsters, the Scuttlers – Friedrich Engels called it “Hell upon Earth”. St Michael’s Flags marks the site of an old church, bombed out of existence during the war, while the Meadow itself hides the largest burial ground in Manchester from the 19th century.
