This is a view of the Peel Arm, a branch off the main channel of the Leeds Liverpool Canal at Church. This was built to serve Church Bank Printworks which had been developed on this site since the 1770s. Chemicals, dyestuffs and printing are a large part of Accrington' indusrial heritage and are largely forgotten. This is a little clue to that important past. Blythes chemicals continue the tradition at Church to this day.
