Narrowboat at Lock#91
Lock 91, Tunnel Lock, is just outside the eastern end of the Deansgate Tunnel, the short tunnel below Deansgate. The tunnel, also known as the Gaythorn Tunnel (see SJ8397 : Gaythorn Tunnel Plaque (Rochdale Canal)), was longer at one time but has been partly opened out.
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.
