Canal and M6 flyover near Gravelly Hill, Birmingham
This is the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal looking south-east from near Salford Junction.

The canal was completed in 1789 having been engineered and supervised by John Smeaton. It linked Birmingham (Farmer's Bridge Junction) with the Coventry Canal at Fazeley Junction, fifteen miles in length, with 38 locks. An extension along part of the Coventry Canal route to Whittington was added later.
