avro (brownsfield mill)

Situated in the vibrant Northern Quarter of Manchester and originally built in 1825, the Grade II* Listed building overlooks the Rochdale Canal.

Avro was once home to A.V. Roe & Co., Britain’s first aeroplane manufacturer.

Together with the reputed local and national property developer Urban Splash, we have created 31 traditional, canal side loft apartments; some of the biggest in Manchester. Set over five floors the one, two and three bedroom lofts feature walls of exposed brickwork and cast iron columns.

Manchester-born inventor Alliot Verdon Roe, founded A V Roe and Company in 1910 at Brownsfield Mill. A.V. Roe and Co, became one of the most successful British aviation companies building iconic Avro marques such as the Avro 504, Lancaster, Lancastrian, and the Vulcan.
