Treasure Trails

City Centre

On this Trail you must find the answers to clues spread around the historic Castlefield area of Manchester which will help you to work out the code to de-activate Titus Hardgrind's rain-making machine. You may win a cash prize if you submit the correct answer to the puzzle!

This Trail explores Manchester's rich history, from its Roman origins through to its transformation in the 18th and 19th centuries as the industrial powerhouse of the world. The Trail starts and finishes outside the Museum of Science and Industry which tells the story of the world's first industrial city - admission is free so why not combine a visit to the Museum with the Trail?

This is a walking trail of around 1.3 miles. Much of the Trail is along canalside towpaths and on quiet cobbled streets away from the city's busy main roads and so it is particularly suitable for younger Trailers.
