The Leeds-Liverpool canal
Every bridge from Melling Road Aintree to Tate and Lyle's Love Lane refinery
(1985)

This project was undertaken as a single walk along a stretch of the canal, taking in the districts
of Aintree, the then rural areas of Netherton and Ford, Orrell, Kirkdale and finally Vauxhall.
Each of the thirty seven bridge appear in a single print arranged in sequence and concluding
with the dead end at Tate and Lyle's. The work records the canal as it passes through a mixture of
industrial and housing estates and captures it in an unkempt and somewhat sorrowful state.
A new stretch, the Liverpool Canal Link opened in 2009, connecting the canal to the Albert Dock.

38pp, thirty seven fibre-based gelatin silver prints mounted on paper, stitched in sections.
Buckram over grey board covers. 22x17x4cm
