Continuing westwards towards Barugh.
For a short distance, the canal route is dry and overgrown.
On the left at this point was a loading wharf, to which a tramway ran down the hillside from Gawber Colliery.
A wide section of canal. Gawber Old Colliery once stood alongside the canal on the left side along this stretch.
Looking back eastwards as the canal begins to dry up. The brown areas show where the canal was.
Suddenly the canal vanishes altogether for nearly half a mile. This area became an opencast mine after the canal closed. When extraction was complete, the site was restored as a level field. The contours of the hillside are now gone but the canal ran toward the right of the photo and then curved round towards the trees in the centre.
