Remains of the Donnington Wood canal at Lilleshall
Remains of the Donnington Wood canal at Lilleshall
Very little remains of the canal itself, apart from a boggy ditch through this area. The canal originally served to connect coal pits at Donnington Wood to the road network near Pave Lane. It opened in 1767, and closed eventually in 1904, since when much of the visible course of the waterway has been lost to dereliction and neglect.
