SJ7419 : Newport Canal

taken 7 years ago, near to Newport, Telford And Wrekin, Great Britain

Newport Canal
Newport Canal
Seen from the town bridge. The Shrewsbury and Newport Canal (which has been known variously as the Shrewsbury, and as the Newport Canal) connected Shrewsbury with the main line of the Shropshire Union Canal at Norbury Junction. The last link between Wappenshall (near Telford) and Norbury Junction through Newport was only completed in 1835. The Canal was abandoned in 1944. The section within Newport town has recently been restored as an amenity - but obviously not as a navigable waterway.
