CANAL users and passers-by have spotted a new addition to the towpath scenery.

A cast iron globe has been installed on the Rochdale Canal towpath by the Lever Street car park, Todmorden, to show how the town became connected to the rest of the world once the canal opened more than 200 years ago.

The globe is part of the Canal Connections project, led by Pennine Prospects, to improve heritage interpretation on the Rochdale Canal.
