Building Manchester Buddhist Centre

Maitrinandi and Priyavadita on how and why we moved from a semi in Chorlton to a six-storey derelict warehouse in the Northern Quarter, over a longer period than we expected . . .

This disarmingly-told story features radiators reclaimed from a demolished, hospital, flooring from an old high school and the invaluable help of the Readers’ Digest Book of Plumbing.

This video was created for the Big Sangha Retreat, 2022.
