SJ5694 : The Sankey Viaduct & the Sankey Canal

taken 11 years ago, near to Newton-le-Willows, St Helens, Great Britain

The Sankey Viaduct & the Sankey Canal
The Sankey Viaduct & the Sankey Canal
The snow enables us to see the line of England's first modern canal (1757 - so 250 years old this year) as it approaches the viaduct Stephenson had to build to take the world's first passenger railway across it. The high masts of the Mersey flats using the canal meant a clearance of 70 feet had to be allowed for beneath the railway.
