SJ3731 : Frankton Junction, Llangollen Canal

taken 40 years ago, near to Lower Frankton, Shropshire, Great Britain

Frankton Junction, Llangollen Canal
Frankton Junction, Llangollen Canal
The Montgomery Canal, which joins the Llangollen Canal, was originally the main line, while the Llangollen section was a water feeder. Navigation on the Montgomery Canal became impossible after a very serious breach occurred in 1936 and it has remained closed ever since, but is now being restored and one day will be navigable again. The Montgomery Canal falls through the still-derelict Frankton Locks from this junction.
