Bratch Top Lock, Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
Bratch Top Lock, Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
The lock keeper's house is on the right. Bratch locks were built as a staircase of three in 1770, and were the largest such structure in the world, raising the water level by over thirty feet (9 metres). They were later converted to a conventional flight by the addition of large side ponds. The canal, engineered by James Brindley, joins the River Severn at Stourport, to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood. It was opened in 1772.LinkExternal link
