Stockport Branch Canal
The route of the former Stockport Branch Canal, near Abbey Hey Lane.
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
