Waterways of Kidsgrove

The two canals which flow through Kidsgrove are quite something. The Trent & Mersey flows through the town, entering via the Harecastle Tunnel - once the longest tunnel in the country and still one of the longest. Near the railway station the Macclesfield Canal branches off from the Trent & Mersey (though some call this a branch of the other canal) and before very long the two canals cross in a rather spectacular aqueduct! You can see my Trent & Mersey Canal photos here and the Macclesfield Canal here.
