Canal Basin

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

"C" is for "Canal" and there are three canals in Ashton.

The scene above shows Portland Basin, the junction of the Ashton Canal with the Peak Forest Canal. The photo was taken a few weeks ago when we were experiencing snow and ice.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

"Canal Basin" is a contribution to ABC Wednesday. For more "C" posts from around the world please follow this link.


  1. Beautiful, snowy, COLD capture! And a great word for the day!


  2. I wouldn't like to try and cross the bridge with all that snow on it.

  3. I'm surprised there aren't children sliding down that bridge.

  4. There's certainly been a lot of snow here in the UK, hasn't there?
    You'll find mine here.

  5. Canals are such peaceful places to walk along...and you have three! How nice that must be! Beautiful photo of a snowy bridge! Enjoy!

  6. Beautiful shot but Brrr it looks cold.

  7. Beautiful winter scene. The canal is superb!

  8. Yes, we have certainly had a fair amount of snow haven't we?

    Denise (ABC Team) Thanks so much for participating!

  9. You have given me an idea for a post! Thanks!

    I love the photos, but not the cold it represents!

  10. A lovely shot, with s many different facets. I particularly like the seen on the water.

  11. I like the structures in the background. Interesting colours too, (including the reflection on those little patches of icy water on the road).

  12. Stunning photograph, snow perfect.

  13. Lovely but lonely shot! Looks like a magazine ad!

    Great ABC post.
    Kisses from Nydia.
