SALFORD QUAYS STREET ART – MAY 2019

I didn’t get a chance to go for a walk along Pomona Wharf pre-match, so after United’s match against Cardiff, I decided to go for a walk to Pomona Metrolink Station to head into Manchester City Centre to check out the Street Art.

It was a nice evening for a stroll too, which was a nice bonus.

There was a lot of new pieces, and there were some works in progress when I was walking along.

You may remember the last time I visited, in January this year, I noted that the are was very untidy, dirty and a bit of a mess.

I doubt it was because of my blog, but somebody obviously felt the same way, as the area has had a bit of a clean up since then.

SALFORD QUAYS STREET ART – JANUARY 2019

Yes, yes, I know, Pomona Wharf.

There’s a big walkway from Salford Quays to Cornbrook Metrolink Station, and it’s covered with Street Art. You can usually see it from afar when you travel to and from Manchester City Centre on the Eccles/Media City Line.

As it had only been two months since my last visit, there wasn’t a lot of new pieces to cover. Again, as I said in my last visit, the area could do with a clean up, and Street Art can play a part in it.

2018 IN PICTURES – NOVEMBER

November 2018 began for me with a trip to Windsor Park to see Linfield scrape a late draw at home to Warrenpoint Town.

From Warrenpoint to Waterford, as the following week I spent a few days in Waterford seeing Waterford Walls, with a brief stop-off in Dublin.

The day after my return to Belfast, it was back to Windsor Park to see Linfield lose to Coleraine.

The following weekend, a new ground for me to visit for the first time, as I headed to The Brandywell to see Linfield take on Institute.

The day after, it was a return to Windsor Park, and another bad home result, as Northern Ireland lost to Austria in the UEFA Nations League.

On the following weekend, I headed to The Limelight to see Cast in concert.

That was then followed by a good home result at Windsor Park, as Linfield beat Cliftonville 4-2.

I then headed to Manchester for a few days, to see United take on BSC Young Boys and get some Street Art photos.

SALFORD QUAYS STREET ART – NOVEMBER 2018

Yes, I know it’s actually Pomona Wharf.

Visible on the Metrolink as you travel to and from Media City, i’ve been documenting this area on foot for a few years now.

In the six months between visits, there has been a lot of new work, which made this a productive visit.

In a change from my usual routine, I walked the route from Salford Quays to Cornbrook rather than the other way around.

The weather when I went out on Wednesday morning was very dull, so apologies for the picture quality.

One complaint, it’s a lovely walk and i’m sure it’s a nice cycle. If I lived near there, i’d be utilising this. However, it is very unkempt and dirty looking, and could look a whole nice with a minimum of effort.

The Street Art on the wall does brighten it up though.

SALFORD QUAYS STREET ART – MAY 2018

As pointed out in the last update, it should probably be called Pomona Wharf Street Art, but it leads to Salford Quays. so i’m sticking with this title.

Whenever I travelled by Tram between Old Trafford and Manchester City Centre, I always noticed this from outside the window, a constant row of walls of Street Art.

Eventually, I decided to investigate this for myself, getting off at Cornbrook Metrolink Station, and found it on foot, getting as many photos as I could.

Every time I have travelled over to Manchester since, I have always made sure I visit here to get photos.

Over to see United play Watford recently, I spent the morning of the match in Manchester City Centre, so that I could make a short tram ride to Cornbrook to then walk to Salford Quays, and then on to Old Trafford.

The weather was nice, which meant I had a lot of daylight to work with.

Another stroke of luck was that I took a wrong turn, and stumbled upon a new piece with a swarm of worker bees with the caption “WE (HEART) MCR”.

I walked along Pomona Wharf and got photos of the new pieces I hadn’t seen before, as the walls had a mixture of old and new pieces.
