Otherton Lane Bridge near Penkridge, Staffordshire
Otherton Lane Bridge near Penkridge, Staffordshire
Bridge No 81 across the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, south of Penkridge. The scene looks very calm and serene.... but no, the noisy M6 motorway is about fifty metres off to the right!
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.
