Right-angle bend on Nottingham canal
Right-angle bend on Nottingham canal
The steam coming from the surface is due to the fact that this photograph was taken when the London Road power plant was in operation. This electricity generating station uses heat from the nearby incinerator and the canal water (which is in motion as the canal is in fact a bypass for an unnavigable section of the Trent) as coolant. The water comes out warm, hence the steam.
