Looking up the Mill Arm towards Peate's Maesbury Hall Mill.
Up to the early 1930's, A & A Peate Ltd ran a fleet of boats carrying corn from and to the mill and also several boats carrying coal for the mill's boilers. One of the boats in this fleet was "Cressy" of L.T.C.Rolt's "Narrowboat" fame.
Originally, the arm ran right into the mill but has now been built over. Note the dense covering of duckweed choking the canal at this point.
