Back to Bridgewater Canal

Canal breach at Agden

Men battle to put the planks in place to secure the canal after a breach in 1906. The building in the background now a private home, was then the Boathouse Inn. Looking on from the right, the man in the suit was Bill Rowbottom who was a cattle dealer from Agden Bridge Farm.
