Leeds Liverpool canal in Maghull

Some nice shots here of a barge negotiating the pedestrian swing bridge at Shop Lane in Maghull on Thursday 19th September. Click on each photo to make it larger.




There can be little doubt that the canal through Sefton is now seeing a much high volume of traffic than for many, many years. Just behind the bridge is the busy Liverpool Road North, a former Turnpike Road, and the contrast between its congested traffic and the tranquillity of the canal is all too obvious to me as a local resident.
