I know the L&L Leigh Branch and the Bridgewater Canal meet under the bridge on St Helens Road (A572) but where about is the statue of the hands?

Just a minute’s walk from the bridge, on the Bridgewater Canal side, PeterP.

You can access that side by going down a path off King St bridge, (under the bridge it’s very low). I’d love to find out who created the sculpture.
