Portland Basin Marina
Marina off the Peak Forest Canal. None of the moored narrowboats appear to have a name.
Peak Forest Canal
The Peak Forest Canal runs for 15 miles between Ashton under Lyne and Whaley Bridge.

It was built to link the Ashton Canal with the tramways that brought limestone from the Peak District quarries.

The Lower Peak Forest Canal forms part of the "Cheshire Ring".
