Bugsworth Basin - looking east.

Once one of the largest and busiest inland ports on the narrow canals, an interchange where limestone and gritstone from Derbyshire quarries was transshipped to narrowboats. Closed in 1927, it was reopened in 2005 after 30 years of hard work by volunteers. The view shows the Middle Basin, the arm on the left led to a wharf where narrowboats were loaded with burnt lime. Straight ahead is the Upper Basin and the Silk Hill bridge down which silk was brought from Macclesfield. The Navigation pub is on the left.
