This film of the Manchester Ship Canal has been produced to accompany one of the National Maritime Museum's iconic objects, the Reliant steam engine.

The Relient (formally Old Trafford) was built for the Manchester Ship Canal, a 36-mile man-made channel connecting the River Mersey to Greater Manchester.

With special thanks to Dan Cross, Colin Leonard and the Daniel Adamson Preservation Society.
