11/11 – Spy Mission Castlefield

For our next Trail of the Unexpected we’ll be going on a Spy mission into the heart of Castlefield in Manchester. This Trail is designed and suitable for children and adults of all ages.

In the late 18th century Manchester mill owner Titus Hardgrind created a rain-making machine that would provide a constant supply of rain and the perfect conditions for spinning cotton in his mills. Great for the mill owners but not so good for the people of Manchester who have been under a cloud ever since. So we must solve the clues and unlock the code to switch off the machine and allow Manchester to bask under a cloudless sky again !!
