Name: Lock Keeper’s Bee
Location: Outside Merchant’s Warehouse, Castlefield
Designed and decorated by: Adam Pryce.
Sponsor: Well Pharmacy
Adam moved to Manchester in 2012 and when first exploring it he fell in love with its canals and their shortcuts through the city. His design celebrates the canal network and is inspired by the floral, technicolour folk art adorning the boats. He hopes his Bee will encourage people to discover the wonders of the Manchester ship canal inland-waterway for themselves.
