Ashton Canal

Ashton Canal

The Ashton Canal forms part of the ‘Cheshire Ring’ and links the Huddersfield Narrow and Peak Forest Canals with the Rochdale and Bridgewater Canals. As well as its use as a green thoroughfare and for leisure boating, the canal towpaths are increasingly popular for walking, cycling and fishing, turning it effectively into a linear park. Many of the old mill buildings lining part of its route have also been redeveloped, creating attractive waterside apartment complexes and bringing new life to East Manchester’s industrial heritage.
