This pageant was to celebrate 153rd Anniversary of the Bridgewater Canal which opened in 1761 and will be the canals 250th  anniversary in 2011.

It is a superbly reproduced with 64 pages  including  lists of  the Patrons,photographs of the event and maps.A must for collectors of our local history.

We wish to thank Connie Duffy our President who has cherished this historic document for many years and we thought it’s reprint would be a good way to celebrate the 250th anniversay of The Bridgewater Canal and a way of raising funds for our community projects.
