In old Roman times, Castlefield was the centre of Mamucium (the breast-shaped hill), developing into an area dominated by the mills which ran alongside the canal system. These days those mill buildings are apartments and offices, whilst the waterways afford plenty of opportunities to stop off in any of the various pubs and restaurants lining the pathways. It’s on the outskirts of the city centre, just by First Street and Deansgate, and offers a pleasant walk with the promise of a hearty meal or tasty beverage as you go. And if you like canal boats, there's no shortage. At night, things get more lively in the clubs and bars of Castlefield Locks.
