The Ship Canal at Easham, where it joins up the River Mersey before continuing the journey to the North Sea

Description

Opened in the late 1800’s, the Manchester Ship Canal allowed boats to avoid using the Port of Liverpool and come straight to Manchester. Now this unique waterway brings together the two big cities of the North, Manchester and Liverpool. The canal is still the 8th largest in the world and remains one of the great engineering feats of the nineteenth century

Along the way the canal displays a number of impressive features as it goes through 5 locks and under a number of bridges and aqueducts. The Peel Group also owns a variety of land, docks, terminals and property along the canal which all offer a glimpse of the canals industrial past.
