Lock and Lift Bridge
At the river Irwell end of the former Manchester and Salford Junction canal. This canal was built in 1839 to link the River Irwell and the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal to the Rochdale Canal.
The canal was less than a mile long, with 4 locks and a tunnel below the Deansgate area. It was built to let boats get between the Irwell and the Rochdale Canal without having to pass through the Bridgewater Canal's Hulme link, the tolls for which were high.
