Everything went exactly as planned. They turned up and did what they were meant to do with no problems at all. – Julie Fidler

Manchester, grown in the industrial age, is now leading the so-called ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and is acquiring a strong media profile as well. Based in the North West of England, near to the beautiful Peak District, Pennines and North Wales, there are plenty of sights within easy reach. Being to the west of the Pennines, Manchester has something of a reputation for rain.  Nevertheless, the average number of rainy days compares well with the national average. On average, the coolest month is January while the warmest and wettest month is August, and February is driest.

The housing stock varies from old industrial terraces like ‘Coronation Street’ to new estates from the 60’s to luxury properties on the fringes of the Manchester conurbation. Greater Manchester actually incorporates Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, Salford and the city of Manchester itself.
