SJ8497 : Rochdale canal before clean up

taken 11 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Rochdale canal before clean up
Rochdale canal before clean up
Rochdale canal, part of the Cheshire ring, taken from Oxford Street bridge, just north of Oxford Road station. On the left are modern apartments above retail premises (including a compact Sainsburys) which front onto Whitworth Street, part of the massive urban renewal in and around central Manchester in the first decade of the 21st century. On the right are office buildings constructed in the first half of the 20th century. The canal, railway and Mancunian Way (inner city motorway) all closely follow the valley of the River Medlock around the southern edge of the city centre. The river itself flows under a bridge immediately south of the railway, which crosses Oxford Street above the river.
