Ashwood Basin, Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
This website LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) informs us that "In 1827 James Foster of 'John Bradley & Co', the Iron-masters from Stourbridge, and Lord Dudley, (The Fourth Viscount Dudley & Ward) agreed to build a railway from Ashwood Basin, on the Staffs & Worcs Canal, to Shut End on Pensnett Chase." The railway was more recently owned by the National Coal Board.

The basin, which extends well beyond the viaduct seen in the distance, is now an attractive marina for pleasure boats. SO8688 : Viaduct across Ashwood Canal Basin, Staffordshire
