Narrow canal near Fordhouses, Wolverhampton
Marsh Lane narrows are about five hundred metres long, and are cut into the sandstone bedrock on the east side. There are two passing places; elsewhere narrowboats cannot pass each other.
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.
