River Irk, Middleton
Looking downstream from the Townley Street Bridge. This river running towards Manchester was totally transformed by the Industrial Revolution; it runs through areas that became major industrial centres of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Following the decline of these industries the river and its surroundings were left derelict and polluted. In recent times regeneration schemes have been started that are steadily improving the areas involved.
