Preston Bridge, Shrewsbury and Newport Canal, Shropshire
Preston Bridge, Shrewsbury and Newport Canal, Shropshire
When this photograph was taken in 1964, the canal, although disused, was still in water. The remains of a lock-gate can be seen. The bridge carried the metalled lane from Preston upon the Weald Moors to Kynnersley. A society now exists with the aim of restoring the canal here.
