I haven't been there for months but I flew out of Manchester recently and it looked to me like the mounds are gone completely. The car park and the street lights must make it is very difficult for photography. Shame as it was a great spot.

I've not been there since January as I was was under the impression the mounds have now gone making any photography, other than approach shots, difficult. If you look at photos in the database from the north side of runway 23R, you can see the car park with no mounds to the rear so I haven't bothered going down that side to check.
