Compare this with SO8459 : Line of Droitwich Barge Canal. The line of trees on the right still marks the line of the weed choked canal. The metal fence is over the portal of the new tunnel under the A449. The new cut is between the portal and a bund in front of the weeds. A little water can be seen through the railings. I understand that the Barge Canal from the Severn to Droitwich is to be full navigable before the Junction Canal and that this may happen during the Winter of 2009/10. The lock are all just about done and the major remaining job is to complete dredging all the pounds. Some dredging of the section between Droitwich and lock No. 1 has been undertaken but I haven't photographed it.
