Teagues Bridge, Trench, Shropshire
Teagues Bridge, Trench, Shropshire
This photograph shows the remains of one of the original bridges over the Shropshire High Level canal system that once existed in this area. The lane passing over the bridge was called Teagues Bridge Lane, but is now a motor road and renamed Wombridge Road in about 1965. The boats using this canal were tub boats, about 20ft x 6ft 3ins in dimension, and they worked in 'gangs' of four, carrying coal. Travelling west, the loaded boats would then work down the Trench inclined plane, at the foot of which the coal was trans-shipped into narrow boats. The area of this photograph is now completely built over with modern housing.
