Bridgewater Canal, Manchester

Canals in Manchester stretch right across the city centre linking west to east. Manchester's canals were the life-blood of the Victorian industrial era and the many old warehouses have been converted into hotels and apartments.

Today they are mainly used for pleasure with people exploring the waterways between Manchester, Ashton and Rochdale at their own leisurely pace.
