Salford New Bailey
Salford, in Greater Manchester, sits in an attractive location on a bend of the Irwell River and is three miles from the centre of the city. From an obscure village, it grew to become a major player in the Industrial Revolution as a cotton town, eclipsing even Manchester in importance at one point. The production of silk and cloth was industrialised here, and the river was used for dyeing and bleaching. Salford Quays connected Salford to Manchester via the Manchester Ship Canal. Today, the town is renowned for its green spaces, and Salford Quays has been regenerated and is full of trendy bars and clubs. Many media and digital industries are based here too.
The town’s growth has meant an increase in demand for parking in Salford. So NCP’s Salford car park at New Bailey is situated conveniently close to the main shopping area and the Quays, for hassle-free parking.
