Rochdale Junction, Rochdale Canal

Taken from near the bridge on Oldham Road (A671), this junction once saw the canal heading off northwards up towards the outskirts of Rochdale centre. Today this branch reaches only the first bridge it meets (as can just be seen at the top of the photo). The canal heads off to Manchester to the left and to Sowerby Bridge to the right.
