Also known as Strangeways Prison and Her Majesties Prison Tower
- The slim, redbrick watchtower of HMP Manchester has been a landmark on the skyline for over 130 years.
- It resembles a minaret, with influences from Italian campanile towers.
- It is one of the few remaining parts of the original building, much of which was destroyed during the infamous Strangeways prison riots in April 1990.
- As a result of the riots, much of the prison was rebuilt, and the name was changed from Strangeways Prison to HMP Manchester.
