Take a step back in time to Lark Hill Place, an atmospheric re-creation of a typical northern street during Victorian times.
The street is set at the turn of the last century, although many of the items are older to show development over time. The ambience is set at teatime on a winter’s evening when the street gas lamps have just been lit. The sounds of children playing, horse-drawn carriages and a ‘knocker-upper’ fill the street. Walk down the street and take a peek inside the many shops and houses, including a toy shop, chemist, grocers, a blacksmiths and an artisan’s cottage.
Lark Hill Place was originally created in 1957 when many shops and houses in central Salford were being demolished to make way for new developments. Many of the shop fronts that are in Lark Hill Place today were saved and restored. The interiors have been furnished and are full of authentic objects, recreating the way they were used in Victorian times.
Visitors can explore the street and dress up in traditional Victorian costumes to really get in the spirit of things!
