Looking south from Coombes Bridge.
Dudley No.2 Canal
Commissioned in 1793 to link the Dudley No.1 Canal at Park Head, near Netherton, with the Worcester and Birmingham Canal at Selly Oak. Originally about 11 miles long, now only approximately 5 miles are fully navigable. From Hawne Basin, in Halesowen, to Selly Oak, the canal is derelict, but hopefully full restoration will be achieved in the not too distant future.
