MANCHESTER. Pho at I Am Pho.

I was in Rochdale the other Sunday, Andy a friend, was running in the 10K race part of the town’s annual Half Marathon event. I was doing the vitally important task of taking care of his mobile phone.

It stands at the highest point of the Terraced Gardens which were created out of the bare moorland by local businessman and philanthropist William Hesketh Lever, later Lord Levrhulme, founder of Lever Bros.
