Ordsall, Salford, an island of red-brick terraces amidst the glass and steel of modern buildings. With roots as deep as the water that runs beside it; it was the beating heart of the dockside, a place of neighbourhood bonfires and exhilarating rites of passage. In recent years major redevelopment has started to reshape Ordsall, new homes, shopping facilities and hotels have been constructed with future plans for more. But how does this regeneration impact existing residents? "I can't see these houses being here in a few years to come. They're building round us and we're in the middle. I think they'll get rid of Ordsall, definitely"
