| Events in Fallowfield | 10 Places to Stay

In the 14th century the area known today as Fallowfield was at that time referred to as Fallafield, and was in fact named after a landowner from the area. Fallowfield is a suburb of Manchester and is probably best known as being home to the Manchester Grammar School, originally situated in Long Millgate, in the 1930ís it was relocated to its present site on Old Hall Lane. Throughout the 19th century Fallowfield managed to escape the worst of the industrialization that was marching through Manchester, however because it was mainly an agricultural area it did attract the middle classes from Manchester who built many fine houses in the area. The 20th century saw the end of agricultural Fallowfield as Manchester continued is outward spiral of development. The houses remained and today many are occupied by students creating a lively cosmopolitan area, with Wilmslow Road forming the main route that is littered with fast food and convenience stores to satisfy the insatiable needs of its mainly resident student population. The Fallowfield Campus and Owens Park Complex are at the heart of this community and with Fallowfield lying just three miles south of Manchester City Centre then it is easy to appreciate why this is such a popular location.
