St Stephen's Church

A scene which looks to be many miles from Ashton but is in fact on the boundary between Ashton and Audenshaw. The spire of St Stephen's Church at Guide Bridge is seen rising above the trees that line the Ashton Canal.

Guide Bridge railway station is out of sight to the left, behind the trees. Mosy peopl epassing through the busy traffic junction at Guide Bridge are unaware that the canal passes below.

See Google Aerial View of this location.


  1. Lovely photograph Martin.
    You are right, the canal here feels like a million miles away from the busy traffic junction above. That's the magic of canals that run through busy towns and cities. They are like green corridors of calm going quietly on their way.

  2. Very nice photograph, Martin. The canal looks so nice.

  3. This scene just wants to make you slow down and savour the surroundings.
