Former canal bridge, Meadow Street
Former canal bridge, Meadow Street
This canal bridge, made by Horseley Iron Works, was removed from near Sowe Common (SP3782) in the early 1970s during construction work for the M6, which at that point runs very close by the canal. It was installed here as a footbridge over the River Sherbourne. The flats and maisonettes nearby were built in the 1950s and 1960s to replace Victorian red-brick terraces.
