Looking south from the junction with the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal.

Although the canal was not fully open until 1777, the thirty-nine miles from here to Derwent Mouth was already fully operational by 1770. James Brindley was the engineer until 1772, when he died following caching a chill while surveying a section of the proposed Caldon Canal.
