Peak Forest Canal from Nursery Road
Peak Forest Canal from Nursery Road
A forlorn winter sight with a dumped settee floating in the Peak Forest Canal at the edge of the ice-cover. Compare with the view in July 2009 SJ9495 : Peak Forest Canal.
Peak Forest Canal
The Peak Forest Canal runs for 15 miles between Ashton under Lyne and Whaley Bridge.

It was built to link the Ashton Canal with the tramways that brought limestone from the Peak District quarries.

The Lower Peak Forest Canal forms part of the "Cheshire Ring".
