Rusty canal. View of part of the Bridgewater Canal at Worsley, Greater Manchester, showing severe discolouration of the water by iron oxide. This has leached into the canal from disused local coal mines. Ironically, the canal was built by James Brindley in 1803 for the purpose of transporting coal from those same mines to nearby Manchester.
