Canal crane
Canal crane
Known locally as "the Culvert" this photograph was taken from the Leeds and Liverpool canal as it passes over Yorkshire street in Burnley. The crane, long since redundant, but still remarkably intact, was used to load and unload goods from barges in the days when Burnley produced more cotton than anywhere else in the world. Directly behind the crane is the red brick of the Brick Makers Arms public house. To the right is Burnley's largest Catholic church, St. Mary's.
