Company of Proprietors of the Canal Navigation from Manchester to or near Ashton-under-Lyne and Oldham
Records of the Company of Proprietors of the Canal Navigation from Manchester to or near Ashton-under-Lyne and Oldham: letter concerning locks 1795 and deeds of partition 1825 and 1834.
The records comprising this fonds have been deposited in the British Waterways Archive, Gloucester between 1963 and 2002. The material has come to the archive gradually over the years and many of the individual records, although indexed, have never been fully accessioned. As a result of this the exact provenance of much of the material and how it was collected is unknown. Most of the material has come from various British Waterways' offices, but some has been deposited by both British Waterways' employees and individuals with a background and/or interest in waterways. There are also a number of records which have been purchased from auction.
