St. Michael's Flags & Angel Meadow Park is situated close to the city centre of Manchester, UK. Map

St. Michael's Church once stood on the site and artist LS Lowry depicted the area in several of his paintings.

In 1999, the park was awarded a National Lottery Heritage grant to regenerate the neglected space for the benefit of a new residential community of Angel Meadow and challenge them to promote the history of the area.

In 2004, the Friends of Angel Meadow (FOAM) formed to campaign for the park's continued redevelopment and since then considerable money has been raised through grants and Manchester City Council interest. This led to the renovation and re-landscaping of the park transforming it into a green retreat from the bustle of the city.

Phase One was in finished in 2007, with further work to restore access steps to Aspin Lane and repair the Angel St boundary wall and entrance was completed in 2016.

The final regeneration of the park will be undertaken as part of funding for the Meadowside Residential scheme currently under construction. 

FOAM actively encourages preservation, fund raising and social events including:

 

   Clean up days and gardening sessions

 

   Tree, bulb and wildflower planting

 

   Genealogy workshops and research into those who once lived in the area

 

   Guided history walks & workshops to research the heritage of the area

 

   Fund raising including social trips, community events and parties

Please join FOAM - membership is free and your contributions & enthusiasm will help to preserve Angel Meadow Park as a beautiful green oasis.
