The world’s most famous waterway starts a ship’s hoot away from the city centre in the most obscure of locations. We trace its origins in the River Irwell, revealing the history of how this most ambitious of waterways was cut through Manchester and Salford to be filled with ocean-going liners laden with the fruits of a thousand exotic imports and exports, servicing one of the biggest ports in Britain – 35 miles from the sea.
