This is part of the Sankey trail in Warrington that follows the route of the now disappeared Sankey canal. Not much to see but worth a quick walk in the fresh air if you're passing by. Only two features here, the old dry dock that was used by the canal barges, further along is the preserved lock area.

Here's a few pics:

Thanks for looking... and... be careful out there.

Very nice. You should see the huge barges near Lymm before they get overgrown and inaccessible.
