Looking towards Hulme Hall Bridge. On the left, the towpath crosses the entrance to a former loading arm for Hulme Works and Britannia Mills.

Hulme Hall Railway Bridges.
Looking back to Hulme Hall Railway Bridges. At one time Hulme Hall Dry Dock was on the left here
Cornbrook Road Bridge.
On the right, you pass Pomona Lock, linking the Bridgewater Canal with the Manchester Ship Canal and Salford Quays.
The modern viaduct carrying the Metrolink tram to Salford Quays snakes across the canal just after Pomona Lock.
Pomona Metrolink station, with the tram line crossing the Manchester Ship Canal before it becomes the River Irwell. The closure of Pomona Docks and the construction of new fixed bridges means that this part of the ship canal is no longer open to large ships. There is access to Pomona tram station from the canal for boaters wishing to meet up with or drop off crew members.
Looking west towards Throstle Nest Bridge and Old Trafford, with the upper reaches of the Manchester Ship Canal on the right. When it was still the Mersey and Irwell Navigation, Throstle Nest Lock was just around the curve, beyond the blue bridge. photo: Neil Arlidge
