SJ9495 : Wharfinger Warehouse

taken 6 years ago, near to Hyde, Tameside, Great Britain

Wharfinger Warehouse
Wharfinger Warehouse
The three-storey Wharfinger's Warehouse on the left was erected by the Peak Forest Canal Company in 1828. It is a Grade II listed building now used as offices by the Tameside & Glossop Primary Care Mental Health Service.

Manchester Road Canal Bridge was built in 1804. The original elliptical-arch tunnel which is grooved for stop planks was widened to the North in the mid 1800s with a truncated elliptical keystone arch which is now partly obscured by the 20th century footpath bridge.

The new houses being built on the right are on the site of the former Automaster Works.
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".
