For context, see SJ8397 : Road bridge over the Rochdale Canal in Manchester: the plaque is on the brick abutment of the bridge carrying Albion Street over the canal just upstream of lock no. 90.

Knott Mill was the name of this part of Manchester until the mid-20th century. The ironworks stood nearby and was owned by the Galloways. It was "one of the great engineering concerns of the nineteenth century and pioneered several developments in metallurgy" (source: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) )
