Construction of a new canal along the old canal line with new locks and bridges. Work started in late September 1999 and was completed in March 2001.

This 800m section runs through the heart of Stalybridge Town Centre and was the largest remaining blockage on the canal. The canal was culverted in the late 1960s and the land released for development.
The restored canal is central to the regeneration of the town and complements other major initiatives both ongoing and planned.
