Worcester and Birmingham Canal Canal Bridge, Parsons Hill
Worcester and Birmingham Canal Canal Bridge, Parsons Hill
The SP0578 : Worcester and Birmingham Canal at King's Norton. At this point Wharf Lane, from the left, becomes Parsons Hill leading away to the right. Notice the red panel with the fire hydrant sign above. These are still a common sight in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. The red panel would originally have been a small wooden doorway and was installed during WWII. These doorways allowed firemen to pump water directly from the canals particularly after bombing raids when main water supplies may have been disrupted.
