Do you know if the new Beetham tower is built on top of the Great Bridgewater Street Wesleyan Chapel? or if not, where that might have been? I love all these sites on Manchester. Does anybody know if there was a tobacco factory in the city in the 1890s?

I'm not sure if it is on the site of a chapel, it is on the junction of Deansgate and Gt Bridgewater St though.

I'll try and find out if there was a tobacco factory- there may have been one on Trafford Park.
