SD5230 : The back streets of Preston!

near to Higher Penwortham, Lancashire, Great Britain

The back streets of Preston!
The back streets of Preston!
From the front, this is a typical row of terraced houses. From the back, however, the southern end of the Lancaster Canal provides a totally unexpected view.

The Canal once ran right into the middle of Preston, terminating at Fishergate - the 1940's map clearly shows this. With the modern developments in the city, the canal now ends here.
