ABC Wednesday: J is for
Jutland Street, Manchester
Still cobbled (or more accurately stone-sett), Jutland Street is supposedly the steepest street in Manchester. It leads off Store Street and crosses the Ashton Canal before ending on Ducie Street.

This is the view looking down towards Store Street from the top of the canal bridge.
Looking east from the bridge is Paradise Wharf on the Ashton Canal. The narrowboat "Moorhen" is moored by the canalside apartments at the end of an aqueduct which carries the canal over Store Street towards Great Ancoats or as it now prefers to be called, New Islington.
Looking west from the bridge is Ducie Wharf where the Ashton Canal ends by turning right under Ducie Street into the Rochdale Canal. The towpath here under the shelter of the highrise apartments are home to a number of Manchester's rough sleepers and their canine companions. Beyond the car parks on the left is Piccadilly Station.
