Three-storey houses under construction
More new houses being constructed on the site of the former Automasters Works. The demolition of the works had opened up the view from Manchester Road bridge over the Peak Forest Canal but now the canal is being hemmed in again.

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".
