Mr Monkey and his humans took a bus to Marple, and scampered to the junction between the Peak Forest Canal and the Macclesfield Canal. He set off by going under Bridge 1 on the Macclesfield Canal, but it turned out to be one of the six bridges on the canal that make you cross to the other side. If Mr Monkey had had a horse-drawn barge he'd have been able to get the horse across the bridge without unharnessing it from the barge.
You can read about the canal at the Macclesfield Canal website.
