A busy days painting after a break while the exhibition was on. A picture from a nice walk along a pretty local canal. Started with the lights before adding the canal and the path. Finally turning it around for the reflections. Quite a famous canal and well known because of it's distinctive orange colour.
The Bridgewater Canal is sometimes described as England’s first canal.
Named after its owner, Francis Egerton the third Duke of Bridgewater who built the Canal to transport coal from his mines at Worsley to the industrial areas of Manchester, the Bridgewater Canal was the forerunner of canal networks.
Opened on 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.
