Friday Bench (19): Piccadilly Basin
Today's benches are to be found at the Piccadilly Basin on the Rochdale Canal in Manchester.
On Wednesday I showed you a series of photos of two narrowboats negotiating Lock 84, the last of nine inner-city locks from the Rochdale's end at the Bridgewater Canal to here at the Piccadilly Basin. A right turn here leads to the Ashton Canal.
My favourite benches discovered last week include Leatherdyke's at Strawberry Waters, Dina's outside Alrov Mamilla Mall, Rune's at Goathland Station, Barbara's at Tofino, Dimple's with reflections, Lynn's in Cheltenham, Rose's red bench in Nashville and Jarart's with a sculpture in Prescott.
