Reservoir built in the 1780's
Reservoir built in the 1780's
Water is a vital resource in any canal system and the Trent and Mersey Canal Company did not want to lose any of their excess water to the Coventry Canal. Subsequently they set about diverting the water via an overflow weir and channel around the Junction. The reservoir was built in the 1780s to hold this surplus water until it was required, when it could be released into the canal at one of the two points either side of Keepers Lock.
