HRS 136 Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal, Nob End Breach 1936

A canal boat containing empty coal containers is left perched over the edge of the 1936 canal breach at Nob End, Prestolee, Little Lever. The river Irwell appears largely dammed by the debris from the breach on the right hand side. The chimney from Cream's papermill can be seen on the left upper corner, the paper mill was badly flooded by the temporary lake formed behind the breach debris.
