The small Manchester Mechanics' Institute was established in 1824 entirely through private initiative and funds to teach artisans the basic principles of science by part-time study. Several Manchester men met in the Bridgewater Arms in High Street to establish the Mechanics' Institute in Manchester, where artisans could be taught by part-time study the basic principles of science - the science being mechanics and chemistry. Of the hundreds of such institutions founded around that time it alone has survived to date as an autonomous body.
