The Twisted Wheel (Whitworth Street)
13th June 2013

From Manchester City Council's online planning -

"This building does not illustrate any important aspects of the nation's social, cultural or and/or have close associations with nationally important people."

"As the perceived 'birth place' of Northern Soul, The Twisted Wheel Club yields communal value associated with it's perceived identity and social interaction. In recent years the social value of the club complex has changed as a result of the focus on gay and lesbian club nights.

The heritage values of the club complex are not considered to be of sufficient special interest to warrant statutory designation of the buildings."

So. Farewell then...
