Plaque at the corner of St. John's Street and Deansgate recalling an event in the English Civil War.  Lord Strange was the title used by the eldest son of Lord Derby.  Early in the Civil War, Lord Derby tried to seize Manchester and its armoury for the Royalists but was thwarted because the citizens had already made plans for its defence.
