    Thanks JD.

    I have just found this in the newspaper. Its regarding a plan to build a canal link from the Ship Canal to the Trafford Centre. The link is marked out in red and white on the right hand side. The idea is to be allow people to travel from Salford Quays to the new "Trafford Quays" on "Venetian" styled barges and do a bit of shopping. It will be the first new canal built in Greater Manchester for over 100 years,the Ship Canal being the last in 1894. Peel Holdings limited,owners of Worsley AAOR, have been granted the planning permission.

    Nice one guys!

    I make a post about a place I used to pass regularly and you turn up a motherload of information.

    This is all very intriguing now, we could have a few new drains on our hands here.

    I remember the sewer farm from the godawful smell. It used to be so bad you could smell it in your car on the bridge over the ship canal!!

    Yeah, the smell is all too common, me thinks something needs doing about it.

    As for the proposed canal scheme that is interesting, but if they really want to make money out of that area, I think it is high time Manchester had a lavish 5 star hotel.

    On topic, anyone going to recce the culvert/drain? I should imagine if it goes underneath the trafford centre proper, then it could be considered a security risk, esp in these times of the PIRA and post 7/7.
