Now I have pretty much said all I wanted to say about Andy’s trips so I shall just leave you with the 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.
A little of of the old industrial activity still exists but much has gone, leaving for a while acres of empty land.
But nature and the developer abhor a vacuum and in the last decade or so tall residential properties have begun to fill the spaces.

Pictures; along the Duke’s Canal, 2016, from the collection of Andy Robertson
