SD5230 : The back streets of Preston!

taken 13 years ago, 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.
