Tales from the Bridgewater Canal, Dukes Drive, Monton

22nd October 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Bridgewater Canal Manchester October Half Term

Discover the stories behind Salford’s Bridgewater Canal with a family-friendly afternoon of free activities at Dukes Drive, Monton.

Step back in time and find out more about what the Duke of Bridgewater’s golden canal did for transportation and trade during the industrial revolution! Follow the Earl’s History Trail, trade your coal for a banana, a steam hammer or an Eccles cake and get rich….

Or you can accompany the mysterious Professor Jigget on a family-friendly magical madcap journey along the canal towpath and beyond…

Both activities are free, no need to book. All ages welcome and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Meet on the meadow at Duke’s Drive, just beyond the car park (off Parrin Lane).

Eat.1761 also got a great mix of family-friendly activities for you to download – from the Aqueduct Challenge to Top Tips for Mini-Beast Hunting. Learn something new, make things or go exploring!

Indoors or outdoors you can be inspired by Salford’s Bridgewater Canal so get downloading.
