Bourn Brook
Bourn Brook, taken 4 years ago
Two brick tunnels taking the Bourn Brook through the embankment that was built initially for the Worcester and Birmingham Canal and then the railway. I have erroneously referred to these as being for the Dudley No. 2 Canal but that was at a higher level and joined the W & B canal end to side. The Dudley No. 2 (Lapal) Canal is hopefully going to be reinstated and its final section will be incorporated (hopefully) into a supermarket development.
