Tunnels, rivers, mines & subterranean spaces of Hidden Manchester

> Steps under Piccadilly Gardens Fountains 📍

From Piccadilly Gardens steps lead down to a set of rooms housing machinery, electrical equipment, 14 pumps and holding tanks which power the fountains above installed in 2002. Photograph of steps underneath Piccadilly Gardens.
Before they were installed the engine room functioned as an underground public toilet which served people in the city for several decades.

The photo shown was taken from roughly where the pin is placed. See rare photos from the inside in Manchester Evening News In Pictures, including a shot of the plans the details on the map were taken from.
