The Manchester Ship Canal

The story of the Manchester Ship Canal and the Daniel Adamson

The Canal is a 36-mile (58 km) long inland waterway linking Manchester to the Irish Sea. It follows the original routes of the Rivers Mersey and Irwell through the counties of Cheshire and Lancashire. Several locks lift vessels about 60 feet (18 m) up to Manchester, where the canal's terminus was built. Major landmarks along its route include the Barton Swing Aqueduct, the only swing aqueduct in the world, and Trafford Park, the world's first planned industrial estate and still the largest in Europe. Les and Chris will talk to us about the Les and Chris will talk to us about the relationship the Daniel Adamson Preservation Society has with the Canal.

Les Green will present the lecture supported by Chris Ellams
