- Supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund, this project brings together local communities, artists, performers, writers and historians. Working closely with leading artists, groups in Salford helped to create a permanent sculpture trail around The Quays, revealing the hidden history of the area from industrial hub to one of the country's most prestigious waterside developments.
- Little evidence reamins of the once thriving Docks, or the people who lived, worked or played here. Through research in the Docks, the Unlocking Salford Quays team uncovered a variety of documents, maps and photographs and conducted interviews with former workers and residents. The material gathered and the stories shared informed the ideas behind the trail artworks and a series of exciting public events.
