Zozagardo at New Islington
The New Islington Marina is centred on Old Mill Street in an area of Ancoats, Manchester, that has seen considerable urban regeneration since the Millennium. The marina services both the Ashton Canal on one side and the Rochdale Canal on the other, although there is no direct connection between the two canals.
The Zozagardo is a 57ft, metal-hulled narrowboat from the River Weaver that has been based at the New Islington Marina since 2011.
The large central basin off the Rochdale Canal has a number of permanent moorings.
Some narrowboats have been moored at New Islington long enough to develop their own canal-side garden.
