SD7400 : Worsley junction

taken 8 years ago, near to Worsley, Salford, Great Britain

Worsley junction
Worsley junction
To the right is the branch up into the Delph for the mine workings which were the main reason for the building of the Bridgewater Canal. The line to Leigh continues to the left. The red colour of the water is due to the minerals leaching out of the old mine workings. Straight ahead is Worsley Packet House.
The helmsman of the narrowboat has to make a hard left turn and hope that there is nothing coming the other way through the bridge.
