SJ8298 : Entrance to Manchester & Salford Junction Canal

taken 27 years ago, near to Rusholme, Manchester, Great Britain

Entrance to Manchester & Salford Junction Canal
Entrance to Manchester & Salford Junction Canal
This long-disused and mainly subterranean canal originally connected the River Irwell (seen here) with the Rochdale Canal, bypassing the Bridgewater Canal for traffic for the Manchester, Bolton & Bury Canal on the opposite bank. There was a lock here, behind the bushes, which is now better preserved than in 1990. Only the river bank stonework is just in this grid square.
