Farmer's Bridge Locks No 4 and Saturday Bridge, Birmingham
This image was taken with a bit of telephoto assistance looking down from Lock No 3. The A457 road crosses the canal here.

The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal joins the Coventry Canal at Fazeley Junction, a distance of fifteen miles, and has thirty-eight locks, including the Farmer's Bridge flight, the Aston flight, the Minworth flight and the Curdworth flight.
The Farmer's Bridge flight of thirteen locks drops the water level by 81 feet (about 25 metres).
