For most of the last two centuries this bit of the Bridgewater Canal was never been very pretty, consisting first of busy, noisy and smelly factories, dye works and timber yards and later a big chunk of dereliction as the industries faded and the area got forgotten.
So here over the next few days are some of Andy’s canal pictures.
The history of the Duke’s Canal can be found elsewhere on the blog, and no doubt will be added to in good time.
