Canal breach at Dunham
The breach at Dunham in 1971 was to have the most far-reaching impact on the Bridgewater Canal. The initial leak occurred at a point near the Bollin Aqueduct, some thirty feet above river level. Quickly turning into a torrent of water, gushing into the river below which washed out a gorge in the embankment, 90 feet wide.
