Greater Manchester's Past Revealed 28- Worsley Delph: The Birth of a Remakrable Industrial Village.

During the 18th Century, Worsley was transformed from a quiet hamlet to a thriving inland canal port and one of the most famous centres of the Industrial Age. At the epicentre was Worsley Delph, a small stone quarry that was adapted for use as a basin that linked the Bridgewater Canal, the world's first true industrial canal, with an incredible network of underground canal that penetrated the coal mines owned by te 3rd Duke of Bridgewater.

Archaeological investigations carried out by Salford Archaeology on behalf of Salford City Council in conjunction with a major scheme of restoration of Worsley Delph has provided a fascinating insight into the development of this remarkable village.

Booklet produced in 2020 by Salford Archaeology in conjunction with Salford City Council and the Heritage Fund.
