New Maker Yards is our new canal-side neighbourhood in the heart of Middlewood Locks, M5 and we are offering stunning 1, 2, & 3-bedroom homes to rent, built around private courtyards and green spaces.
The neighbourhood is located 10 minutes from Salford Central and 10 minutes from Manchester’s Spinning Fields area. With local bars, shops, and club room opening next month it’s the perfect place to jump into the buzz of city life or retreat to the calm of a place you can call home.
The buzz of two great cities. The cool calmness of the canals. A place to live, work, meet friends. New Maker Yards is all this and more, part of a brilliant new big-city neighbourhood with a character of its own.
Built around three historic canal basins and bounded by the River Irwell – famously the border between Manchester and Salford – New Maker Yards is changing the face of both cities.
We’ve got more than 275 new homes here at New Maker Yards, so there’s plenty to choose from. There are dozens of different sizes and layouts, all designed by award-winning architects Hassell, plus three collections of hand-picked furniture – meaning every home has a slightly different feel to it.
But we’ve kept some things the same: built-in leading brand appliances, floor to ceiling windows and loads of light in every single home.Find a home
A pet-friendly neighbourhood with animal wellbeing prioritised as highly as residents, welcoming your furry friends at no extra cost.
All homes come with balconies or terraces making it an ideal location for those with four-legged friends. Take walkies along the canal or go further afield to Peel Park.
From New Maker Yards, you can walk to Spinningfields or Manchester city centre in just 12 minutes. And it’s a leisurely stroll, along the canal, stopping for coffee. Need to go further? Salford Central station is just five minutes on foot – or faster by bike.
And if you need to drive, there’s plenty of secure parking on site, plus easy access to main routes into and out of the city.

When your local bar just happens to be a Seven Bro7hers beerhouse, and there are half a dozen restaurants dotted around Middlewood Locks, why go anywhere else? Of course, for a change, you could be tempted by dim sum in Chinatown, the new bands in the Northern Quarter or the cocktails and haute cuisine of Spinningfields, all less than 20 minutes’ walk away.
But then again, there are yoga classes along the canal … and regular exclusive resident events like The Big Night In to get friendly with your new neighbours.
Green space to relax in, canals to amble along. That’s New Maker Yards.
You’ll find quiet courtyards, adventure playgrounds for the kids, well-maintained cycle paths and great places to walk the dog – did we mention pets are welcome here? For a more serious workout, there’s a fully equipped gym a few minutes walk away while the towpaths make for a great running circuit.
It’s all there for you to find your perfect balance.
We’re the company who rewrote the rules for renting and we’re doing the same at New Maker Yards.
Working from home doesn’t have to mean in your home. Head to the residents’ club room for a connected workspace, big screen and free coffee.
And going out can be a Big Night In, with our regular resident events bringing up-and-coming performers and unique experiences to Middlewood Locks.
