Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal Society Working Party at the locks.

The MBBC Society is hoping to fill and connect this stretch to the Bolton Branch which is in water. Doing this would make the bridge an essential link in the public footpath as well as make an attractive feature on the canal in its own right.  It will also create better links between Little Lever and Moses Gate Country Park.
