Peak Forest Canal, Railway Bridge at Dukinfield
After leaving the Ashton Canal at Portland Basin, the Peak Forest Canal passes below this graceful cast-iron railway bridge, built in 1845 by the Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway Company. It was rebuilt in 1978.
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".
