Spotting of what? Woodford closed in 2011 and became a housing estate. There is a museum devoted to the history of the former factory/airfield.

If you're a heavy machinery enthusiast, you'll be in your element.

If it's tower-cranes you're after Manchester's 'tower-crane city'; counted 69 from the train between Salford Crescent and Ardwick!

The last time I visited that place was to pay my final respects to the condemned :(

The Avro Heritage museum is well worth a visit, but there's nothing else to see. Nice houses by Redrow though, so nice we bought one!
