Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal near Kidderminster
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal near Kidderminster
This is the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal at the northern fringe of Kidderminster. Behind the grassy embankment (flood defences) on the left is the River Stour. The housing ahead is built around Alder Avenue. The name certainly suggests it has been developed on what was flood prone or potentially wet land.
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.
