Longport: The 'Kingdom' of Davenport (1760's - mid 19th C))
Location 19 on
the index map
We have now crossed over the canal using the footbridge at the end of Pidduck Street, directly opposite is a field on the left and footpath on the right.
This is the Fowlea Valley - it can be seen that the footpath goes down in level (as you would expect in a valley) but the level rises in the field - this has happen in large areas of the valley - building and tipping has raised the level of the valley floor.
next is the canal side cranes at the Middleport Pottery
