The Rochdale Canal. Littleborough to Summit.
The Rochdale Canal is a waterway crossing the Pennines from Manchester to Sowerby Bridge. I have always wanted to walk the length of the canal and I have so far managed in sections Littleborough to Sowerby Bridge a distance of approx. 13 miles.
I undertook to walk the section from Littleborough to Summit in May 2014 and these photos were taken along that stretch of the canal. This distance was approx. 2 miles from bridge 51 outside Littleborough Railway Station to Warland Swing Bridge at Summit and during the course of the walk I passed 11 bridges and 13 canal locks as the tow path rose up to cross the Pennines.
