We are Clean & Green Castlefield! We exist to rejuvenate, beautify, re-wild, cleanse, greenify and ultimately appreciate & enjoy our wonderful community of Castlefield. As a group of community-minded residents, we feel lucky to live in such a historic and unique part of Greater Manchester.

Castlefield is the oldest part of the city and boasts Manchester’s Roman origins, the first passenger railway in the world and the oldest of the Industrial Revolution canals. With such heritage on our doorsteps, we feel compelled to and work to maintain and improve the local area through activities such as litter-picking, gardening and developing green space.

Feel free to join us – either a little or a lot – with your valuable time and effort to celebrate our wonderful community spaces.
