Directly ahead were the cooling towers of the disused Blackburn Meadow power station, which have now been demolished. To the left, a short distance from the canal, is the giant Meadowhall shopping mall, built on the site of Tinsley steel works.

Around the bend, Tinsley Viaduct is suddenly in view, carrying the M1 motorway and a major road across the valley on two decks.
