The Leeds Liverpool canal runs through the centre of the town of Wigan through the architecture and history and right alongside some open expanses of water.
One particular stretch near Poolstock, just outside the town centre has a long and straight towpath, which always is quite amazing to capture.
This shot from above captures half of it, paved, cobbled, and running alongside the canal itself heading south towards Manchester.
Captured on a still spring day, the towpath separates the canal from "Scotsmans Flash", a much larger expanse of water.
Looking northerly you can see the other half of the straight paved towpath and how it divides the water perfectly before meandering its way into the town itself.
