Canal at Filance Bridge in Penkridge, Staffordshire
Canal at Filance Bridge in Penkridge, Staffordshire
Filance Bridge is No 84 across the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. It was an acoommodation bridge, but in the last fifty years Penkridgr housing has expanded on both sides of the canal, so now it is a public footbridge. It will be noticed that the Cross Keys public house is not at (the much newer) Cross Keys Bridge. ;-)
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.
