Bridges over the canal near Oxley, Wolverhampton
There are six bridges across the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal in about two hundred metres here. The first two shown are railway bridges, though the first line is now disused.
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.
