The Ashby Canal near Burton Hastings, Warwickshire
James Bridge (No 9) is about a hundred metres ahead.

Opened in 1804, this 22 mile lock free canal originally went as far north as Conkers (near Moira), and never reached Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Coal was carried on a regular commercial basis until the 1960s. At present the canal stops at Snarestone, though the extra eight mile stretch to Moira is being (or has been) restored. We all anticipate its opening in the not too distant future.
