SP0399 : Rushall Canal - Longwood Junction - Daw End Branch

taken 11 years ago, near to Walsall, Great Britain

Rushall Canal - Longwood Junction - Daw End Branch
Rushall Canal - Longwood Junction - Daw End Branch
The canal changes markedly in character either side of the junction. The canal north of the junction was originally built in 1800 as the Daw End Branch of the Wyrley & Essington Canal and curves to follow the contours. To the south the Rushall Canal constructed in 1847 follows a straight line cutting through the landscape with a number of locks. The branch on the left served the Hay Head limestone quarries now a nature reserve.

SP0399 : Wreck on the Rushall Canal has been moved to mooring beside the junction.
