SJ5787 : Sankey St.Helens Canal

near to Penketh, Warrington, Great Britain

Sankey St.Helens Canal
Sankey St.Helens Canal
This is a rather sad looking section of the disused Sankey St.Helens Canal. Warrington Borough Council have decided to fence off the tow path rather than trying to make it safe enough for anglers to use this stretch. As you can see, the canal itself is becoming clogged up with weed and algae since the anglers have been kept away.
