Nechells Shallow Lock near Star City, Birmingham
Salford Bridge Lock. This stop lock, No 64 on the Grand Union Canal (formerly Birmingham and Warwick Junction Canal) no longer has gates fitted, as it serves no purpose. Originally it would have been built to prevent the canal "stealing" water from the older Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, which continues behind the camera.
