Trolley on Ice
A supermarket trolley and other debris have been dumped on a frozen bend of the Peak Forest Canal. In the background is the railway line from Rose Hill via Hyde Central to Hyde North and Manchester Piccadilly.
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".
