Bugsworth Middle Basin, Derbyshire
Seen from Brookside.
Peak Forest Canal.
Bugsworth Basin near Whaley Bridge was built in 1796 to form an inland port to receive, then distribute limestone along the canals of Britain. The arch on the right is the entrance to the Middle Basin Arm. The local stone used extensively in the basin appears a dramatically different colour in sunlight to the same stone on a dull cloudy day. LinkExternal link
