Bridge from before the motorways 2-Birmingham
Bridge from before the motorways 2-Birmingham
This bridge, which carries Lower Loveday Street, is of cast iron and stands over the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal. The bridge was Grade 2 listed in 1982. The Canal, completed in 1789, runs from Birmingham's Gas Street Basin to Fazeley, which lies just south of Tamworth. The first time I have ever seen boats on this stretch and this was the third one through. The photo, taken from the other side of the bridge to my first, was taken on the day of a Sustrans work party to clear vegetation from the towpath.
