SJ9802 : Overflow structure at Sneyd Reservoir

near to Bloxwich, Walsall, Great Britain

Overflow structure at Sneyd Reservoir
Overflow structure at Sneyd Reservoir
Sneyd Reservoir was constructed to provide a supply of water to the locks on the Wyrley Branch of the Wyrley and Essington Canal. The branch was abandoned in the 1950s and water levels were much reduced in the reservoir. As can be seen from the historical mapping the surface area has almost halved and trees and vegetation have colonised the former bed. This overflow structure sits on the old crest line of the embankment.
