The Macclesfield Canal
The Macclesfield Canal is just over 27 miles in length, and has thirteen locks, including the stop lock at Hall Green and the other twelve at Bosley. The canal was surveyed by Thomas Telford in 1825, then engineered by William Crosley, and opened on 9 November 1831 at a cost of 320,000. It joins the Trent and Mersey Canal at Hall Green to the Peak Forest Canal at Marple.
