Save Our Cranes
Save & restore the iconic blue cranes, symbols of the dockers who built the city of Salford, the cranes are iconic industrial treasures, much loved within the local community
Why is this important?
Because the cranes are scheduled to be demolished despite almost universal support within the Salford community for them to be saved and restored as tourism attractions, and for future generations to be proud of the work of the dockers. Salford City Council have ignored the advice of English Heritage that the cranes should be listed locally as heritage assets and are scheduled to demolish them sometime in the summer, so it could be very soon. A Community Preservation Order was submitted to Salford City Council to save and restore the cranes but this has been rejected and the local community is now appealing to the Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government to make an immediate political intervention. We need all the help we can get with this campaign to save the cranes
