The Canal

The Hollinwood Branch of the Ashton Canal ran from Fairfield in Droylsden, through Littlemoss and Daisy Nook Country Park to Hollinwood and Butler Green, with a branch from Daisy Nook to Fairbottom.

The canal's location lies between Manchester, Ashton under Lyne and Oldham in the north west of England.

The canal included four aqueducts and eight locks, including a two-rise lock staircase.

The Society

The society aims to see the restoration of the canals within Daisy Nook Country Park, the re-connection of Daisy Nook with the Ashton Canal and the creation of a new canal link through to the Rochdale Canal.
