Bridgewater Canal Worsley Spring

THE BRIDGEWATER CANAL WORSLEY SPRING

Canal boats traditionally travel at 4 miles per hour, which roughly equates to the speed of a brisk walking pace, and this significantly determines how the waterway is experienced. It allows us time to observe, whilst travelling, in a way often lost to us in the modern era. It’s also a constant thread back to our ancestors, who also would have journeyed along the Bridgewater Canal with the same measured progress. Over the four seasons of the year, I’ll be […]

NEW BRIDGE STREET 3.10AM – 4.05AM

NEW BRIDGE STREET 3.10AM – 4.50AM  Since starting this particular series of Not Quite Light I’ve realized quite how little I know about the Irwell. Its path is that of an uncoiling snake, and I couldn’t easily draw it out if asked.
