SK2002 : Fazeley Junction

taken 9 years ago, near to Fazeley, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Fazeley Junction
Fazeley Junction
Canada Geese in the foreground and Mallard ducks behind them swim nonchalantly about on this canal junction. Ahead, through the bridge the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal heads to Birmingham, off to the right the same canal heads off to join the Trent & Mersey Canal at Fradley Junction. To the left the Coventry Canal departs eastwards. However if you follow the B & F on the map from this point towards the T & M, about halfway to Fradley it gets called the Coventry Canal - see the note* below. The bridge, mill and chapel seen here are all in the adjacent square to the south.
* Note: The first part of the section from Fazeley to Fradley is the B&F, however, rather confusingly, the second, northern, half is called the Coventry Canal - this is due to historical ownership - see LinkExternal link
