Canal north of Penkridge, Staffordshire
Canal north of Penkridge, Staffordshire
In the distance is Longford Lock, No 39. The water is a bit low, and erosion continues on the right when boats travel too fast and create a wash.
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It cost a little over 100,000 at the time. It links the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood Junction in Staffordshire. There are 43 locks (45 if you don't fancy the deep wide locks at Stourport) and the canal is 46 miles in length.
