Where is it?

A correspondent is anxious to identify the location shown in a painting of a bridge over a canal.

It is most likely that the scene is somewhere on the wider waterways of northern England. It is just conceivable that it might be in Ireland, though, so I said I’d put a copy up here and see if anyone can identify it. If you can, please leave a Comment below.

  1. Looks like a Leeds & Liverpool bridge, I’ll pass it on to a local expert.


  2. Probably would be easier to identify the bloke than the bridge! Could be one of hundreds in the UK but looks like the Lancaster Canal around Salwick Preston

  3. Thanks, Tim. The Rochdale has been mentioned as a possibility too. bjg

  4. Thank you: that hasn’t been suggested before. I should have mentioned too that we don’t know the age of the painting. bjg
