River Medlock
A surprise view of the river which is largely subterranean in this area. Here it emerges from a tunnel beneath the Castlefield canal basin and Potato Wharf, where there is a weir SJ8297 : Weir at Potato Wharf. The tunnel was constructed to avoid the grossly-polluted water entering the canal except under flood conditions. The water quality has obviously improved dramtically as there is a heron fishing very successfully, and two swans enjoying the cool shade.
