The exact opposite LTS.
The port charges and transport rates at Liverpool were so high that a group of business men proposed a canal to Manchester.
To cut a long story short, it became a great success, turned Manchester into the third largest seaport in the country and had on its banks the largest industrial estate in Europe.
Its well worthwhile seeking out accounts of the history of the MSC. Wikipedia has a good one.
