The Ashby Canal near Marston Jabbett, Warwickshire
Seen through the arch of Quarry Bridge (No 2).

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 eight mile stretch to Moira is being (or has been) restored.
