Canal with path drainage feature
Canal with path drainage feature
This stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal was originally the Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal. It's approaching a bridge over, carrying Grub Street. In the foreground the towing path is over-run by a water flow where there's a series of shallow concrete channels to conduct the water into the canal; as can be seen, it's only partly successful.
