An Afternoon Wander at Salford Quays

Sunday 17th November 2013 

A short canal side wander around Salford Quays 

Distance: 3.5km; Ascent: negligible; Cloudy

This afternoon I had an hour to kill at Salford Quays and as it was dry I decided to head out for a bit of a stroll. I walked past the new BBC buildings and over the new footbridge over the ship canal with good views of the Imperial War Museum North and The Lowry.

I walked SE along the south bank of the canal past an interesting sculpture entitled "Silent Cargoes" dating from 1996.

Crossing back to the north bank at the road bridge, I wandered through the quays past a watersports centre to return to The Lowry after a pleasant hour's stroll.
