SJ7419 : Newport Canal and lock

Newport Canal and lock
Newport Canal and lock
The Newport Canal was quite a late canal, being built in 1835. It was closed many years ago, but fortunately the section through Newport was purchased by the local authority, and this part was restored to water. The lock, in the foreground, is not of course working. There is a Shrewsbury & Newport Canals Trust who would, as a long term aim, like to see the Newport and Shrewsbury canals restored.
