Collier St Baths is a Grade 11 listed building, the ltalianate brick building on Collier St was designed by Thomas Worthington, who is considered one of Manchesters greatest 19th Century architects .

When opened in 1856 by the Manchester and Salford Baths Laundries Company it was used by 3,476 people in the first two weeks , and was considered one of the finest pools in the country.

It was at the begining of a golden age for public swimming and was used by 50,000 a year at its peak, Mark Addy one of the City's most famous sons , who rescued more than 50 people from drowning ,learned to swim there .

For decades it has crumbled and has been neglected in a forgotten corner of Salford . The laundry,boilerhouse,and chimney have been demolished ,the pools tiles have gone , and the building has no roof, yet Mckay has found this hidden gem a constant source of interest . His work focuses on elements of the building's exterior architecture, reflecting its palette of beauty and splendour .
