Postcards featuring Marple's Canals and Waterways

Marple Promotions' first venture in 2002 was a series of eight postcards depicting local scenes from the Peak Forest and Macclesfield Canals. Showing Marple at its very best, these cards revealed the tranquil beauty of Marple's canals, which can be so easily missed if you pass through too quickly.
