We are very close to Bugsworth Basin, the terminus of the Peak Forest Canal.
The Peak Forest Canal runs for 15 miles between Ashton
under Lyne, east of Manchester, and Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire, UK. It links the Ashton Canal
with the tramways that brought limestone from the Peak District quarries. The canal's terminus at Bugsworth Basin is one of the best-preserved
canal-tramway interchanges. Marple Aqueduct carries the canal 100 feet above
the River Goyt. There are 16 locks at Marple, separating the "Upper" and "Lower" parts of the canal. The Lower Peak Forest Canal forms part of the "Cheshire Ring".
