Deptmore Lock south-west of Wildwood, Stafford
Deptmore Lock is No 42 on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. The lock provides a rise (or fall) of 10ft 3in (31 metres). The isolated cottage is undergoing extensive refurbishment following the passing of the previous owners.
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.
