River Irwell Bolton

River Irwell Bolton

Location: Prestolee Rd canal over pass MBBC to Mytham Rd

211 meters steep banking, you have to be very careful where to enter at this moment in time – not for the faint hardy. Need to be aware how hard it is to get to due to steep banking, best advice is to go down near the canal side and work along this section but rewards are good for those who venture down the way – just look for an easy access point. We are hoping to develop a walkway down in the future.
