The construction of the Manchester Ship Canal was one of the great engineering feats of the nineteenth century. Fifty-five miles from the sea, it was the first time an inland city was transformed into a major port servicing the world. Today, the volume of traffic might have decreased but a journey along the Canal still offers a fascinating perspective on one of the greatest achievements of the Industrial Revolution.
