I have lived in Eccles all my life and becoming a Bridgewater Guide has given me the opportunity to share the stories and history of the area to locals and visitors.

A former railwayman for over 30 years I acquired a detailed knowledge on the area and its links not only to the railways but to coal mining and beyond.

The Bridgewater Canal and the wider Salford Metropolitan Borough area have a rich history and this has inspired me to become a guide so that I can pass on our important past and hopefully inspire others to enjoy our rich heritage.

As one of a group of local Green Badge Guides I help provide regular tours along the Bridgewater Canal and also other areas of Salford. Our group can also do private tailored tours covering specific aspects of our local heritage.
