This is one of two gasholders nearby, and has the easier take-off spot.
I parked at the the end of Upper Helena Street, and took off from Ashton Canal Park, where the view of the structure was excellent.
Accessibility: level paths with no steps.
Hazards: Upper Helena Street could win a prize for being one of the filthiest and most repellent streets in Manchester. I would NOT come here in the evening. In daylight there are countless discarded beer cans, drug canisters, broken glass and burnt remains of who-knows-what.
Land owner permission not required.
