In 1794 the building of the Peak Forest Canal received Parliamentary approval and Whaley Bridge became one of the two termini. The canal was built principally for the lime trade, and for the carriage of coal from Whaley Bridge to Bugsworth for the burning of lime. Built in 1801
The Transhipment Warehouse would have been a scene of constant activity, with boats loading and unloading inside the warehouse, protected from the weather by the interior channel.
The success of the canal trade in limestone, as manufactured and raw goods, led to Whaley Bridge developing from a small hamlet into the thriving town it is today.
Today the basin is home to the Judith Mary, a trip and restaurant boat, and the Transhipment Warehouse, is home to a cafe and small shop.
Every piece we create tells a story and fades into white, leaving the viewer with the impression of a world outside the scene, and a story yet to be told. In fact every piece comes to you with a story about it with an accompanying card with your wall art or on the reverse of the greetings card.
Each print takes many hours to produce, using layers, masks, overlay, textures and creative techniques to produce a fine art piece you will be proud to have in your home. We do not use automated processes of any sort.
