taken 36 years ago, near to Brierley Hill, Dudley, Great Britain

'Brummagem Brittanic' at Parkhead Junction
'Brummagem Brittanic' at Parkhead Junction
Brittanic, at 70 feet, was the largest of the hire boats in the now defunct Brummagem Boats fleet whose base was in central Birmingham. She is seen here at Parkhead Junction where the Dudley no 1 and no 2 canals meet; she could not pass through Dudley Tunnel so would have had to turn left here. The viaduct carried the Stourbridge - Dudley railway which was still open for freight traffic in 1984 but has since been closed. This view taken some 28 years later shows a much tidier scene: SO9388 : Parkhead Locks
