In this video we are in Castlefield in Manchester. We are exploring the history of Canals, warehouses and underground tunnels from the 18th century. What we see is a wonderful example of British industrial history from the 18th century. The start of the industrial revolution . Very much Georgian Britain. This is Episode XI of the River Medlock journey. We have finally entered Castlefield and we see the work of James Brindley Francis Egerton and his engineer John Gilbert the force behind the Bridgewater Canal. Britains first Industrial canal. This journey started out with us Kayaking along the Bridgewater canal and ended up an urbex in an underground tunnel in Manchester. We see the remains of a waterwheel chamber that powered lifting gear for the Grocers warehouse one of the first 18th century warehouses.
