Once out of Middlewich the canal passes through a largely rural landscape interrupted only by the crossing of the M6 at Hassal Green, though this is not obtrusive. Where small towns and villages are encountered the scene is very pretty with local residents presenting their properties in a way that blends in naturally with the canal scene, Thurlwood and Malkin’s Bank being notably pleasing on the eye.

Here is a slideshow of my photos along the canal. (Photos taken on 23 May 2012.)

Below is a Google map of this area of the canal.
