Weekend Reflections Over Yonder

Looking at the Peak Forest Canal from Manchester Road.

The path and bridleway on the right, signposted "Over Yonder" leads to the Tameside Animal Welfare shelter on Raglan Road where there used to be a bridge across the canal. That bridge has been closed for at least five years so the only through route now is along the towpath which is on the left next to the Aldi supermarket.

It looks a lot better than it did the last time I showed you this view in December 2010.

A contribution to Weekend Reflections.


  1. It still makes for an interesting picture, Gerald. We have bits and pieces of our old "Erie Canal" that used to run from Lake Erie, in the Great Lakes, to the Ohio River at Cincinnati. There is a section in nearby Vandalia, Ohio and I have been there and photographed it. It is not much more than a depression now as it has almost filled in with silt and soil over the decades. There are trees now growing in what used to be the bottom.

  2. Terrific reflection for the day, Gerald!! I love that still, still water! Hope you have a great weekend!


  3. I love canal reflections and yours is a good one.

  4. Feels like spring.

    Please have a good new week ahead.

  5. Like the serene mood in this pic as well as the bend in the canal!

  6. A pensive mood along this water.

  7. Nice, I'm planning on exploring this canal later in the year.
