Stalybridge Saturday: Canalside Apartments



These newly-built apartments are alongside the canal behind Knowl Street, overlooking Lock 7 on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and Mottram Road bridge.

Compare and contrast with Wednesday's photo of apartments overlooking the canal in Ashton. Those who have been away from England for a few years may be surprised that the canal is now the place to be! It has attracted a lot of development along through Ashton, Stalybridge and Mossley.

  1. When I were a lad in t'old days this canal was all filled in and had been built over and so on.
    It's a testament to the perseverence of the canal enthusiasts that today one can can have a lovely apartment overlooking the water.

    I remember the work being done in 2000 in Armentieres Square. I'll dig up my picture and post it.

  3. No, Greeny. The houses on Huddersfield Road are still there, although the buildings on the corner at the bottom were pulled down a while ago for road widening.

    If you compare the Google and Live aerial views you can see that the new apartments replace a factory and a car scrap yard, with no houses on Knowl Street lost.
