Fishing beside the Wyrley and Essington Canal
In the second half of the nineteenth century the canal lay next to Pelsall Ironworks. Canals and railways transported away the products of the many blast furnaces, puddling furnaces, forges and rolling mills. The introduction of steel led to the rapid decline in the use of iron and bankruptcy of the firm in 1891. The last chimney on the site was demolished in the 1930s. Nature has recolonised the site and has now reverted to open heathland.
