The Sankey Brook runs leftwards from the centre. Parallel to it, and conveniently marked by a cyclist, runs the line of the infilled Sankey/ St Helens Canal. Stephenson had to build the massive viaduct, a 'first' in railway engineering, to accommodate the masts of the Mersey flats, the sailing vessels for which England's first industrial canal was built.
