Canal at Greensforge in Staffordshire
Canal at Greensforge in Staffordshire
This is the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal looking north-east from Greensforge Lock. The traditional working boat is a replica. I don't know if it has ever been used for transporting cargo yet.
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.
