Peak Forest Canal: Sluice Gates to Wilson Brook
The Peak Forest Canal approaching the winding hole (an area widened out to allow craft to turn round) in Hyde.
On the left is the M67 motorway. Ahead is a 19th century warehouse and behind that the Manchester to Rose Hill railway.
The sluice gate on the right allows water to run off into Wilson Brook. The houses behind the fence are part of Moorfield Place which was built on the site of the former Automasters Engineering Works.
See how it looked in
May 2014; nine months earlier in
August 2013; a year before that in
September 2012; earlier in
February 2012; a year earlier in
March 2011; three years before that in
March 2008 before the Automasters Works was demolished.
