- Stop plank slots between here and Stanley road bridge. It seems as though the slots were put here in preparation for WW2.
- The Gasworks wall beside the towpath is a reminder of Bootle's industrial past.
- The bricked up portals in the gasworks walls were for delivering huge quantities of coal, used to make coal gas coke and ammonia (alkili). There was a soap factory opposite.
- A short distance away, a memorial on Ash Street marks the spot of the Cooperative air raid shelter, a war grave.
- Most of the opposite bank is modern housing with visual access to the canal. Note the railings on the towpath, giving the houses there visual access.
- Despite its modernity, much of the housing replaces housing stock damaged in WW2. On Ash Street, there is a memorial to those who died in the air raids.
- The towpath was resurfaced, and the canal dredged, in 2009 as part of the Canal Corridor Improvements
- Williams' Toffee Works used to stand here on the offside (More to come).
- Despite being very urban, the canal still has a wild offside bank which supports a variety of wildlife habitats.
