The station clock at the Manchester Central Conference Centre. The Centre was built as a Manchester Central station in 1880 as the terminus for services from London. It was closed in 1969 and became derelict before being rennovated as a conference and concert venue (known as G-Mex) in 1982. Having again been superseeded by the opening of the Manchester Arena in 1995, it was again renovated and opened as Manchester Central in 2007. The roof is the second widest unsupported iron arch in Britain after St Pancras in London. Through the window is the Midland Hotel
