Fallowfield

Fallowfield is a suburban locality in the city of Manchester, England. It lies roughly 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Manchester city centre and is bisected north–south by Wilmslow Road and east–west by Moseley Road and Wilbraham Road. The former Fallowfield Loop railway line, now a cycle path, follows a route nearly parallel with the east–west main road.

The area has a very large student population. The University of Manchester's main accommodation complex – the Fallowfield Campus – occupies a large area in the north; these are adjacent to the university's Owens Park halls of residence and the Firs Botanical Grounds. In the north-west of the suburb is Platt Fields Park formed from part of the land which once belonged to the Platts of Platt Hall.
