Where is this canal side cottage?.


Recommended Posts

No but Wire boy could well be. If it is the New Cut, they only demolished the lock keepers cottage about ten years ago.


My guess might be the Sankey canal just before Burtonwood. What we're looking at might be a bridge rather than a lock.

I used to live in Wier lane Martinscroft for many years,actually there is a road named after the family,as Bill said the cottage was derelict until about ten years ago looks totally different now.


I was down there yesterday watching the salmon jumping at the new weir,saw five or the same one five times,whilst I was there a guy who works for environment agency checking the salmon trap in the fish ladder,he told me only about half as many fish had returned to the river this year,thought it could be down to water quality.
