Mr Monkey walks the Rochdale Canal through Manchester

Trip date : 4th May, 2011
"It's been a very pleasant walk through the centre of the city"

Mr Monkey crossed Dale Street to get a good view of the Piccadilly Canal Basin's entrance arch, ordered by the RCC in 1822 and described as "a Gateway built of Stone rusticated". The shiny sign was added quite recently. Mr Monkey peered over the edge of the Dale Street bridge to look over the whole basin, then set off to catch the train home from Piccadilly station.
