Straight mile
On the aqueduct of the Leeds and Liverpool canal known to locals as the "culvert" and looking down the Straight Mile towards the Weavers Triangle. The embankment that holds the Straight Mile is regarded as one of the wonders of the canal age. Note: The Straight Mile is not a mile in length. The mass of terraced housing in the middle of the photograph is the parish of Burnley Wood.
