SJ5397 : The Carr & Stanley Canal

taken 11 years ago, near to Chadwick Green, St Helens, Great Britain

The Carr & Stanley Canal
The Carr & Stanley Canal
This short, half-mile canal, which is close to the terminus of the Sankey Canal,(see SJ5396)was only recently placed on the list of known canals in Britain. It served the Stanley Iron Slitting Mill to the south, bringing coal and materials from another part of the iron works at Carr to the north. The snow enables its construction to be seen more clearly - material from the hillside on the left having been dug out and piled up to form the lower bank, upon which was the towpath for hauling boats.
