Scotsman's Flash from the canal.
Moss Bridge at the south-east corner of Scotsman's Flash. This is a 'changeline' or 'turn-over' bridge where the towpath changes sides, designed so that horses towing boats did not need to have the towropes detached.
The canal passes the remains of an old bridge.
The Wigan to St Helens railway crosses the canal.
