Finlays Warehouse

Finlays Warehouse is a Grade II listed warehouse built in two phases (between 1870 & 1892). The name derives from the original company name, Finlay Campbell and Co Ltd,who were Scottish firm operating from Manchester and India.

Like many of the buildings in this area of Manchester, originally they were used as warehouses for shipping and the clothing industry.

The large entrance on Mangle Street, known as the hovel was created to allow deliveries directly into the building rather than blocking the street.

The industry in the area declined in the mid 20th century, leaving many of these formidable building neglected. 56 Dale Street received a new lease of life in 1975 went it became the famous Foo Foo’s Palace night club for over 25 years.

Despite being used more recently by BBC’s Life on Mars and the Sherlock Holmes movie, it has become a forgotten gem, simply walked passed and ignored by 100s of people every day.

The developers plan is to change that, and bring 56 Dale Street back to life  offering a selection of 1,2 and 3 bedroom  luxury apartments.
