King's Norton Junction
These photos of Norton Junction were taken when Lesley and I walked the dogs up from Warstock - there is a distinct shortage of footpath's around here and, because the walks are uninspiring (up and down the towing paths basically), so we are not getting enough exercise to walk off the beer! This is the wooden guillotine lock - the old stop lock, no longer in use.
Looking South down the Worcester & Birmingham Canal.
Stop lock gate at t'other end - looking quit majestic in the autumn sun.
Tariff showing cost per mile per ton of carrying different products.
Lesley and the boys having a quick pose. Below, to the left, looking North up the Worcester and B'ham and, to the right, looking back down the Stratford towards Brandwood Tunnel.
