Deansgate overview (east)
The new footbridge between the tram and rail stations at Deansgate has opened up a new view. On the left is the Deansgate-Castlefied Metrolink station on a viaduct that once led to Manchester Central station. On the right is Whitworth Street West. Once the A57 but since the opening of the Mancunian Way it has been relegated to the B6469. Between the two and below the eye level of both is the Rochdale Canal.

Rochdale Canal
The Rochdale Canal runs for 33 miles between Manchester and Sowerby Bridge in West Yorkshire, UK. In Sowerby Bridge it connects with the Calder and Hebble Navigation. In Manchester it connects with the Ashton and Bridgewater Canals.

The canal was opened between Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden and from Manchester to Rochdale in 1799 and between Todmorden and Rochdale in 1805. Most of the canal was closed in 1952. Restoration work began in late 1980s and by 1996 the canal was opened to navigation once again between Sowerby Bridge and the summit level. The canal was re-opened to navigation along its entire length in July 2002 and forms part of the South Pennine Ring.
