SJ9108 : Canal bridges at Four Ashes, Staffordshire

Canal bridges at Four Ashes, Staffordshire
Canal bridges at Four Ashes, Staffordshire
Here the canal is crossed by one of two bridges supporting pipes at the main Schenectady (SI Group) chemical works, which is (was) situated on both sides of the canal. The current satellite image shows the whole of the site north-east of the canal has been demolished. I am unsure whether Schenectady still uses the bridges, or even if they still operate on both parts of the site.

The canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It joins 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.
