SJ9003 : Marsh Lane "Narrows", near Wolverhampton

taken 10 years ago, near to Oxley, Wolverhampton, Great Britain

Marsh Lane "Narrows", near Wolverhampton
Marsh Lane "Narrows", near Wolverhampton
The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal approaching Marsh Lane Bridge (No 67).

The narrows are cut into the sandstone rock, and for a quarter of a mile or so narrowboats cannot pass each other. There are two wider spots in the narrows where one (maybe two) boat(s) can pass another coming the other way. The latest Nicholson Guide mentions that locally the stretch is called "Pendeford Rockin'", after a local farm.

The white blossom on the trees is Hawthorn, or Mayflower.
