#Repost @heritagebrickworkrestoration & @kinguendo Heritage Spotlight | Admiring these amazing Tudor style gates in Bridgewater Canal. Opened on the 17th July 1761, the Bridgewater Canal has a special place in history as the first canal in Britain to be built without following an existing watercourse, and so became a model for those that followed it. Named after its owner Francis Egerton the third Duke of Bridgewater, the canal was built to transport coal from his mines at Worsley to the industrial areas of Manchester. 📷: @kinguendo (great to see Salford’s canal heritage shown on @heritagebrickworkrestoration)
