THE OLD….the grooves worn in the side of this canal bridge are the result of a hundred and fifty odd years of tow ropes joining horses and narrowboats in the days when all traffic on the canals was horse power.
THE NEW….Narrowboat ’ Skye ’ which at the time the photograph was taken was only about a year old. She was approximately 58 ft long and the no. 85 painted on her side states she was the 85th boat built by Braidbar Boatbuilders based at Lord Vernon’s wharf just north of Macclesfield.
Location: Macclesfield Canal, UK.
