Canal Lock at Stalybridge


As I'm away for a while, Pamela from Tenerife is posting a series of photographs from the environs of Hyde rather than the town itself.

The Huddersfield Narrow Canal flows through Stalybridge, the most easterly town in the original county of Cheshire. Much restoration work on the canal hereabouts was undertaken a few years ago.

The clock tower belongs to the Victorian Market Hall, sadly closed for a many a year.

I remember going on trips on the canals in the midlands when I was a kid. (I think they were still horse-drawn then :) And my grandad used to fish them down south. Such an intrinsic part of British history.
