SJ8996 : Stockport Branch Canal signpost.
Stockport Branch Canal
The Stockport Branch of the Manchester and Ashton Canal, now infilled, ran from Clayton to Lancashire Hill. It was opened in 1797 in order to transport coal from the collieries in the Ashton and Oldham area to Stockport. The canal was just over 4 miles long with no locks. Its route took it through Openshaw, Gorton, Debdale Park and Reddish to a wharf and warehouse complex at Lancashire Hill, to the north of Stockport town centre. LinkExternal link LinkExternal link

The Fallowfield Loop is an off-road cycle path, pedestrian and horse riding route from Chorlton through Fallowfield and Levenshulme to Gorton and Fairfield in Manchester. The Fallowfield loop was previously part of the old 'Manchester Central Station Railway', built in the 1890s and closed in 1988. LinkExternal link
