Railway Viaduct Crossing the Rochdale Canal near Deansgate
One of several viaducts dating from the mid nineteenth century when they were built to carry the (then new) railway lines into Manchester City Centre. To the left, the viaduct continues across Castle Street before arriving at Deansgate Station (SJ8397 : Viaduct Crossing Deansgate).
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.
