SJ5986 : River Mersey

taken 11 years ago, near to Higher Walton, Warrington, Great Britain

River Mersey
River Mersey
South of Warrington the river executes several large meanders. This photograph was taken at the apex of one of these, looking upstream. In the distant centre, but obscured by the foreground tree, is part of the original course of the river. The arm coming in from the rear left is a manmade alteration to the river course made to straighten the river upstream of this point.The original channel linked the river to the Manchester Ship Canal when the latter was constructed in the 1890s.
The path on the extreme right forms part of the Transpennine Trail and, just out of the picture further right, lies a section of the Runcorn and Latchford Canal.
