River Irwell
The River Irwell rises on the Rossendale hills north of Bacup and flows south for 39 miles before joining the River Mersey west of Manchester. It was a very important river in the development of industry, during the Industrial revolution, in Lancashire.

The Ordsall Chord :: SJ8297
The Ordsall Chord (also known as the Ordsall Lane Chord, Ordsall Curve or Castlefield Curve) is a short stretch of railway line currently (2016/17) under construction in the Ordsall area of Salford. It will link the mainline railway stations at Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria.

First proposed in the 1970s (as the "Castlefield Curve"), parliamentary powers for construction of the link were received in 1979 but the project was cancelled. The proposal was revived in 2010 as part of Network Railís Manchester Northern Hub proposal. It is scheduled to be completed by December 2017, and will cost around £85 million to construct.
