Walking the water ........... the Rochdale Canal in late May

Now the Rochdale Canal has seen its own fair share of changes.

From working waterway to derelict and sad dumping spot it has been returned to a place with a purpose.

And as before, the boats ply the stretch from the Castlefield Basin up to Dale Street at Piccadilly and even some of the branches that led off from the main canal to warehouses cotton mills timber yard and coal wharves coal have been restored.

So what better to do on a hot May day than walk the waterway.
