Sanctuary Seekers at Pennine House
Pennine House is a short-term holding centre for up to 8 asylum seekers and immigrants who have been detained by the Home Office. It is hidden away in a nondescript grey hanger-like building near Terminal 2 at Manchester Airport. Asylum seekers are often taken there for a few days before being moved to an Immigration Removal Centre (IRC). Most of these are down South near Heathrow or Gatwick Airports.
