Horticon were engaged by Salford City Council to install the latest woolly word to take up residence on the canal - #FLOATIEST.
It has been knitted by the Bridgewater Canal Knitting Project who enthusiastically knit heritage inspired patterns designed by artist Rachael Elwell.
Its new home is in Boothstown Marina and we think it very fitting that the boat moored next to it is the Francis Egerton*. We wonder what he would have made of it?!
*Francis Egerton was the Third Duke of Bridgewater - the Duke who, along with John Gilbert and James Brindley was responsible for the building of the Bridgewater Canal.
