Looking north-east from Kinfare Bridge, along a meandering Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. These are the visitor moorings. If you are travelling towards Wolverhampton, stop here. The next opportunity is north-east of Hyde Lock more than half a mile away!


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.
