Sankey Canal

This week's theme is the Sankey Canal at St Helens, once the key point of the canal (such that the canal was also known as the St Helens Canal) but now the canal is much depleted and just consists of two disjointed parts of waterways though there are plans to restore it. The full photos set can be seen here.
