I've been here before, for example here, so given the overcast day I didn't take many pictures on this occasion. However, as I had to wait for a while at the Barton Aqueduct I took a snap of the Bridgewater Canal crossing the Manchester Ship Canal (above).
Then a picture looking back towards the Trafford Centre.
