SJ8598 : Permissive path notice

taken 7 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Permissive path notice
Permissive path notice
When the New Islington Metrolink tramstop SJ8598 : New Islington was first opened there was no direct connection to lock #3 SJ8598 : Lock at New Islington on the Ashton Canal and from there to the various developments on the other side. Now a direct footpath has been built which carries the notice:

Highways Act 1980
Canal & River Trust
hereby give notice
that this right of
way is not dedicated
to members of
the public

which presumably makes it what is known as a "permissive path".
Ashton Canal

The Ashton Canal runs eastwards from Manchester to Ashton under Lyne. It links the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and Peak Forest Canal with the Rochdale Canal and Bridgewater Canal and forms part of the "Cheshire Ring".

The original scheme was completed in 1796, running from a large basin behind what is now Piccadilly Station in Manchester, climbing gradually eastwards via 18 locks to Fairfield, Droylsden. From there one level section continued eastward to Whitelands Basin, Ashton under Lyne, while another arm headed north through what is now Daisy Nook, climbing another eight locks to Hollinwood, with a branch running east from Daisy Nook towards Park Bridge. A short arm from Portland Basin crossed the River Tame to Dukinfield. A year later an additional branch from Clayton to Stockport was opened.

The short link between Ashton Canal Basin at Piccadilly and the Rochdale Canal was not opened until 1800, when disputes about canal tolls and responsibility for paving the streets around the basins were resolved.

The Peak Forest Canal, opened in 1800, joined the Ashton Canal by way of the Dukinfield spur across the aqueduct over the Tame at Portland Basin.

The Hollinwood Branch Canal closed in sections between 1932 and 1961. The Stockport Branch Canal was closed in 1962.
