Made in 2010 with local families from Weaste and Ordsall and Salford based ceramicist Beverley Gee.

The shape of this sculpture echoes the ebb and flow of the Canal. The artist was inspired by stories of an ancestor who claimed to have walked on both the Canal floor during its construction, and the Canal surface when it froze to ice.

The sculpture is decorated with ceramics showing drawings of dockers at work. Their job was to unload a ship’s cargo and load it onto rail wagons lined up along the Docks. The task was heavy and demanding and took place outdoors in all weathers.
