Woodseaves Cutting north of High Bridge, Shropshire
Woodseaves Cutting north of High Bridge, Shropshire
Shropshire Union Canal.
Woodseaves Cutting (which has its resident ghost!) is the longest cutting on any canal in Britain. The sides are steep and there have been many slips, blocking the canal. Early canals tended to keep earthworks to a minimum by winding round hills, whereas later canals such as this one tended to have more direct routes, with deeper cuttings and higher embankments.
