St. George's Island
St. George's Island
A development of apartments on the land between the Bridgewater Canal and the railway lines. Appropriate and patriotic flags were being flown for the World Cup soccer. Derelict canalside warehouses can be seen on the towpath side of the canal, indicating what a run-down area this had become before the present enthusiasm for urban apartments, which is very welcome.
